School Governors

School governors play a vital role in promoting high standards of educational achievement. They share a common belief that children should receive the best possible standard of education in all areas of their development and help promote the strong Catholic ethos of the school. This is in the interests of current and future pupils. 

Members of governing bodies include:

  • School staff
  • Parents of pupils
  • Members of the public from all walks of life

Governors are committed to serving the best interests of the school. As unpaid voluntary public servants, they help to sustain their school’s identity and provide a link with the local community. An effective governing body is a source of enormous strength to the school.

School governance is the most important volunteering role in education.

Almost anyone over 18 years of age can become a governor. There are no particular qualifications or requirements, other than a willingness to give time to the role and a capacity for working with other people.

There are different categories of governor:

  • parent
  • staff
  • foundation
  • partnership
  • local authority
  • co-opted

The type of governor you become depends on your situation; however all governors have the same roles and responsibilities once part of the governing board.

From time to time, a governor vacancy arises. If you think you have what it takes to be a school governor, please contact the Chair, via the School Reception, to express an interest.
