Volunteering as a School Governor
Reasons to volunteer
Being a school governor means being interested in getting the best education for the pupils at the school. Governors can become involved in a range of school matters, which can include recruitment, finance and curriculum.
They also provide a strong link between the school and the local community, and an independent view to support the school on long term development and improvement.
Governing bodies meet on at least a termly basis and governors are also expected to get to know their schools through visits. There are a range of training opportunities available to help governors undertake their duties and develop their understanding of the key areas of school management.
