Certain schools in and around Crewe are facing a shortfall of school governor volunteers and there is a real need for people to put themselves forward and help.
Governing bodies are hugely important in supporting a school’s progress and development. You would work in a team alongside a combination of staff, parents and members of the community, to act as a ‘critical friend’ to the Head Teacher and make important decisions regarding the school’s overall strategic management. These cover a wide range of issues including site management, personnel, budget control and the curriculum. Filling governor vacancies allows schools to benefit from a diverse mix of perspectives and skills and increases the effectiveness of the governing body.
Effective governing bodies ensure all children have access to a quality education.
SGOSS, the school governor recruitment charity, is working to fill governor vacancies across Cheshire and ensure that every school can benefit from the skills of local people. School governance offers a unique chance for volunteers to learn and apply transferable skills and gain an insight into the education system.
Anyone over eighteen can become a governor; you don’t need to be a parent or have any specific experience. The only requirement is that you have the enthusiasm and desire to make a difference. The average time commitment is 6-8 hours a month which includes some background reading, attending full governor meetings, and being on at least one committee.
