Glenbrook’s local governing body is recruiting for parent and community governors now.
Glenbrook works in close collaboration with the nearby Portland Spencer Academy – the schools now share an Executive Principal and an Executive Governing Body, which include parent and community governors from each school. As a Parent Governor, you would attend one meeting each half term and help to make important decisions about the school.
We are looking for at least 2 new governors and you do not need any previous experience; you just need an interest in helping us the very best we can be for our children.
Help to shape Glenbrook’s future – speak to Mrs Green or Miss Cairns about being a governor today.

Governance is the process by which any organisation or group organises in order to be able to make decisions. In schools, this includes the governing body, who are responsible for scrutiny of decisions made in school and for driving improvement, and the processes and policies which allows the school to work effectively and appropriately.
As a member school within a multi-academy trust, responsibility for the governance of Glenbrook Primary School ultimately derives to the Board of Trustees appointed to the Spencer Academies Trust. In common with all Spencer schools, Glenbrook Primary School has a Local Governing Body (LGB), which is technically defined as a committee of the Trust Board.
The powers defining the legal relationship between Glenbrook Primary School and The Spencer Academies Trust, together with the delegation of general powers within the trust, are set out in a document called the Scheme of Delegation.
The Scheme of Delegation used at Glenbrook Primary School can be found here.
