Current Governor Vacancies at Ashton Vale Primary
Are you interested in or do you have a background in education?  Could you offer your skills to strengthen our school's Local Governing Board?  

Ashton Vale Primary School are looking for Governors who can bring new skills and expertise to their Local Governing Board.

As well as our own unique identity, we are proud to be part of the Gatehouse Green Learning Trust with a shared vision and common set of values.  

Ideal candidates should have an enthusiasm to learn and be interested in children's education. We are particularly keen to hear from anyone with a background in education, but it is not essential as long as you are enthusiastic and willing to learn. 

Becoming a Governor is a voluntary role; it can be an extremely rewarding experience and provides an opportunity to learn new skills, whilst making a difference to children's education.  

Please note that all Governors appointed are subject to identity and enhanced DBS checks.  
If you are interested in becoming a Governor at our school, please email the LGB Clerk to Governors at: LGBClerk@ashtonvale.bristol.sch.uk
