United Education Services are seeking an individual with strong educational governance experience and passion to join us as Chair of the Proprietary Board.

We are an independent specialist school in Leicestershire for pupils experiencing social, emotional and mental health difficulties between the ages of 7 and 16. We believe that education is the vehicle for improved outcomes for all. Ethics and values are at the heart of our culture.

The Proprietary Board remit includes overall responsibility for the school’s mission and strategic vision, oversight of its effective management and appropriate planning for future developments, as well as its financial sustainability, regulatory compliance, and ensuring that the interests of key stakeholders are met. The overall aim is to deliver excellence in our teaching that makes a real difference to our pupils and making sure our money is well spent.

The role of Chair is a strategic, ‘eyes on, hands off’ commitment which typically involves 20 to 25 days per year attending Proprietary Board meetings, visiting the school and undertaking supervisions with the Head Teacher for governance purposes.

Our organisation is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children, and expects all staff and board members to share this commitment. Before your appointment as chair is confirmed you will be required to undertake an enhanced DBS check
