Governors

School governors are volunteers who work together with the headteacher and the local authority to improve education and other outcomes for all pupils.

 

You could become a school governor if you are aged 18 or over and:

 

  • Want to make a positive difference to the education of local children
  • Can get on with other people and work as part of a team
  • Have some time to spare to attend meetings and to read necessary papers
  • Are ready to learn and open to new ideas
  • Are willing to put something into your local community
  •  

You don't need any formal qualifications, you'll get full training and support to make sure you are fully equipped to carry out the role successfully.

 

If you would like to be a school governor, or are interested in finding out more, contact Lancashire County Council  on 01257 516147 or email governors.central@lancashire.gov.uk.

Governors Register of Interest

As well as attending regular Governing Body Meetings each term, our Governors are very much 'hands on' in school!  They support reading, attend worship, accompany educational visits and help us in very practical ways!

Governor: Rev Graham Halsall takes assembly every fortnight. This week he had a special surprise, as children presented him with a thank you for hospitality on a church visit. They had the added bonus for seeing his flock of chickens and having biscuits at the vicarage. He was given a cockerel to accompany his six hens.
