How to become a governor

The role of a governor is interesting and challenging but at the same time rewarding. If you are over 18 years of age you can become a governor. An enhanced DBS check will be made to ensure your suitability to be a governor. Governing Bodies are made up of a group of volunteers - staff, parents and local people whose main aim is to work as a team to ensure the wellbeing of all children and to ensure they achieve to the the best of their ability.

A governing body has the following three core functions:

  1. Ensuring clarity of vision, ethos and strategic direction.
  2. Holding the executive leaders to account for the education performance of the organisation and its pupils and the performance management of staff.
  3. Overseeing the financial performance of the organisation and making sure its money is well spent.

If you are interested in becoming a governor, you can contact the school for more information.  Alternatively, Telford & Wrekin Council provide more information on becoming a governor
