Being a school governor can be a challenging and rewarding experience.Do you have skills that could be useful as a school governor or just an interest in improving pupils' education? You can become a school governor by:
being elected by parents as a parent governor, if your child attends the school
being elected by the teaching or non-teaching staff, if you are a member of the teaching or non-teaching staff
being appointed by the local education authority
being appointed by the church or charitable trust
or by being co-opted (appointed) by the the other governors.
Schools organise elections and tell parents and staff about them, but you can always ask a school whether there are vacancies now that need to be filled. You can also complete and submit a local authority school governor application form, available to download below. If you feel that this is the role for you, then please contact us.
