Schools are run by a Board of Governors working with the principal to secure the delivery of education in the school suitable to the needs, ages and abilities of the pupils. Becoming a governor is a way of contributing to your local school and learning new skills. Who can become a school governor? All types of people can become school governors, with the exception of anyone disqualified on the basis of child protection requirements, bankruptcy restrictions or recent criminal convictions. No special qualifications are required, but you must be 18 years of age or over. Enthusiasm, commitment, an interest in education and team work are important qualities. You don't need to have a child at the school. Schools particularly welcome new governors who have transferable skills developed at work, such as business, finance or human resource skills. As a new governor, you would usually be appointed to the Board of Governors of a school within your local community. You can apply to be a governor via the Department of Education's website, by clicking here, or you can express your interest via the PCC at St.Chad's Parish Church, Headingley.
