Becoming a School Governor

School governors come from all walks of life.  They might be parents, staff, members of the local community or business, or might simply have an interest in education. They provide strategic management, challenge and accountability.  Governors work in partnership with school staff with the aim of providing the highest possible standards of education and to help all children reach their potential.  Governance can be a rewarding, enjoyable and stimulating experience and can give you an opportunity to contribute your skills and develop new ones.
