Parent Elections - Join our AAB!

Avon Valley College: Academy Advisory Board

Parent Nominations


October 2016


Dear Parents/Carers,

A vacancy has arisen for a parent member to serve on the Academy Advisory Board of this college.  We are very keen to encourage parents (or people with parental responsibility) of registered pupils to nominate themselves to fill this place. For more information please download: who can be a parent member 

Parent members are elected by parents and from parents and are vital to our Advisory Board. You will work with other members and the principal to support the development and improvement of teaching, learning and standards.

If you join our Advisory Board, you will serve for a four-year term and you can continue to the end of the term of office even if your child/children leave the college. Of course, being a member does take up time.  The Advisory Board meetings are held once a term.  You will need to set aside time to be able to be an effective member, time to prepare for meetings, for visiting the college, undertaking training and updating.  

To find out more about being a parent member at this college, you can contact the college office and leave your contact details and Mrs Helen Mathieson CEO SPA will contact you and will be very willing to answer any questions. 

If you would like to take the opportunity to put yourself forward as a candidate, please download, complete and return a nomination form to the college office by Monday 17th October. 

If more than one person is nominated, there will need to be an election, I will contact you to let you know about the arrangements.


Yours sincerely,


Tim Webber
