We’ve had a few ballot papers returned last week and there’s still a week left to vote. You can vote any time between up to Friday, 30th November at 4.00 pm. The ballot box is on the desk at the school office.
This is a really good opportunity to talk to your children about what voting is and how it happens, so it’s not just an exercise in democracy, it’s a learning opportunity for your children! Talk to them about it, explain how it works, bring them with you when you post your vote in the ballot box, explain what will happen next.
Last time we had an election for a parent governor we had about 50 votes altogether – that’s about the same turn-out as there was for Police Commissioners recently! It would be good if we got a vote from every parent who is entitled to vote this time.
