Becoming a Parent Governor

In the UK, school governors make up the largest volunteer workforce in the country!  School governors have an incredibly important role.  School Governing Bodies are given a range of duties by Parliament that concern the overall management of the school.  

Governors work in close partnership with the Head Teacher, who is responsible for the day to day running of the school, and with the teaching staff, to agree the aims of the school and to decide together how the standard of education can best be monitored and improved.


Parents have a unique opportunity to become involved in the strategic direction of the school, by becoming parent governors.  If you would be interested in joining the board of governors, please speak to Mrs Freeman.
