Active since 1999, Governors for Schools believes that the key to improving school performance is effective governance. Their aim is to improve educational standards so that children and young people have the chance to realise their full potential. The charity receives no statutory funding so they still need your generosity to help continue their efforts to improve the education system. Effective governance translates into better opportunities and systematic change allowing young people to thrive in their education.
The governing board consists of 12 governors and meetings take place every 6 to 12 weeks. It’s the governing board’s job to set the strategic direction of the school. The role of Governors is to support and challenge the headteacher and make sure public money is well spent.
