Chair of Governors, Portfield School – Autism Unlimited

Website Autism Unlimited

Portfield School is a thriving non-maintained school for 137 pupils based in Christchurch, Dorset, and part of Autism Unlimited, which exists to support and empower those living with autism.

It’s an exciting time to join Autism Unlimited, as the charity enters an ambitious period of strategic growth and expansion, with the aim of doubling our impact over the next strategic period. The School Governing Body is central to this growth, and we are now seeking a Chair of Governors for Portfield School, to help guide, support and hold the senior leadership team to account, for improving the school’s offer.

You do not need to have been a governor before, but chairing or leadership experience would be beneficial. You may have direct experience of autism and will also bring the professional insight and determination to create an aspirational education for children living with autism.
