What it involves

Being a governor does not require special qualifications or a great deal of knowledge about education initially, this can be developed over time. It requires a willingness to support the school and a commitment to seeing it continue to be a successful school for it’s pupils. The governing body work together to aid in the running of the school supporting the Head Teacher who is responsible for the day to day running of the school.  Governors commit themselves to between 2 and 4 meetings a term.
