How to become a Governor

Anyone can become a Governor. You do not have to be an expert. An interest in the school, enthusiasm and an active commitment to helping ensure the school be the best it can is much more important.

The most important attributes of a Governor are:

To bring different experience and interest from many walks of life;

To be able to work closely with others in decision-making;

To ensure that any work involved these decisions is followed up and completed;

To be able to spend time at the school and with the staff and pupils in order to understand how the school works;

To be a good listener – a Governor is a ‘critical friend’. Governors are there to challenge and support the school, not sit removed from it, its’ work, staff, pupils and parents.
