Governors Welcome

As Co-Chairs of Governors, we are delighted to welcome you to our Federation. We are passionate about providing a safe, nurturing, and stimulating environment for our students to learn and grow.

The team of volunteers that make up our governing body plays an important role in our school. We are here to challenge the leadership to ensure that the school is well-led, support the school in providing a high quality education for all our pupils, check that its resources are used efficiently and effectively, and it that has effective policies and procedures that are actually followed in practice. We meet every half term to discuss progress on strategic aims, school improvement, monitoring, policies and other issues that have come up.

Between us we have a range of skills and experience which we can bring to the governing body to benefit the school. We aim to put the children’s welfare and education at the heart of every decision we make.

We look forward to working with you are always happy to hear from you – you can contact us via the school office or at

Becoming a Governor

If you are interested in becoming a governor please let us know. We’d be happy to explain how it works. We really want a diverse range of people who can offer different perspectives and viewpoints.

Governors can be parents at the school or other members of the community. You may be able to bring your skills or experience to the team but the most important thing is a commitment to the children at our school and the quality of their experience and education as well as a willingness to learn how we work. You will need a certain amount of time to attend meetings, visit the school occasionally and keep up to date with training and school information – the more of us there are, the more we can share out the things that need doing. We will do our best to help if you have any particular needs or barriers that you think might stop you becoming a governor such as the timing of meetings, transport or difficulties with reading in the usual format.

While being a governor has it challenges, there are many advantages, for example:

· Helping to shape the future of the school and making a difference to children’s lives

· Learning about the education system and how schools are run – in particular, how our schools work in our communities – there are opportunities to specialise in areas that interest you, supported by a huge amount of free professional training available online and face to face

· Developing skills that you will be able to use elsewhere – communication, problem solving, team working, leadership, mentoring and more

· Building relationships and connections with other members of the team, sharing experience and knowledge

· Becoming part of the school community, getting to know staff, pupils and families

Becoming a governor is a bit like applying for any other job, there is a process to make sure we have a suitable role and that you have a good understanding of what’s involved and what we would need from you. There are different ways to join the governing body depending on what type of governor you become. The first step is to get in touch – You can contact us at
