A BID to find new governors for schools in Tendring in continuing with a series of roadshows.

The recruitment drive will see a meeting take place in Clacton next week for those interested in finding out more.

The majority of schools across the district have a vacancy for at least one governor.

The issue of recruitment has been raised at the Tendring Education Improvement Group, which was set up to improve educational attainment in Tendring.

Graham Lancaster, lead commissioner for primary schools who sits on the group, said: “We are searching for people who have an interest in learning, teaching and pupil progress.

“Governors play such an important role in the life of a school and while it can be a challenge it is also very rewarding.”

An initial meeting was staged at Spring Meadow Primary in Dovercourt last week and now the roadshow rolls on to Clacton County High School on Tuesday at 6.30pm.

Lynda McWilliams, Tendring Council’s cabinet member for well-being, said: “I would urge people to come along and find out more so that we can start to fill up some of the gaps we have at our schools.”
