Parent Director Election
In the newly formed Blessed Edward Bamber Catholic Multi Academy Trust we have provision for two parent directors which are currently both vacant. One of the parent directors must have a child at either Christ the King or St. Cuthbert’s Catholic Academy. The other parent director must have a child at St. Mary’s Catholic Academy. Nominations must be from parents or carers with children at the academy on the day that nominations close. The post is for four years. More information is in the attached letter.
