Parent Governor Election

I wrote to you on Tuesday 29th October 2019 to invite nominations for the vacancies for parent

I am delighted to say that there has been a good response and there are five candidates for the two
vacancies. This means we must now hold a ballot.

We are sending home in book bags tonight (22/11/19):

  • A unique, numbered, ballot paper with the names of the candidates (in alphabetical order)
  • A copy of the personal statements from the candidates who are;

Carly Harding
Dominic Kelly
David Walker
Oksana Walker
Neil Warwick

You may vote for up to two of the candidates. Each parent can submit one ballot paper, regardless of the
number of pupils you have attending the school. As indicated on the ballot paper you should vote by
marking an ‘X’ alongside the names of the parents you support.

Once you have marked the ballot paper you should seal it in the envelope. This should then be put in the
ballot box, which can be found in the school office by Friday 6th December 2019. If it is not possible for you
to vote in person, please return to the following address: Grasmere C of E (VA) Primary School, Stock
Lane, Grasmere, Cumbria, LA22 9SJ

The two highest polling candidates will be elected. In the event of a tie, lots will be drawn.
When the election has been completed, I will let you know the outcome. If, in the meantime, you have
any queries, please let me know.

Yours faithfully,

Carolina Bourgeat,

Clerk to Governors, Returning Officer.
