They also support the Headteacher and executive team of their School to undertake their local leadership role as well as acting as a group to reflect the needs and views of the local community in which their School operates. The LGB’s meet half termly, in person 6 times per year for 2 hours, there are also training requirements/opportunities. Governors can also act as designated leads on key issues such as Safeguarding and SEND and may be asked to undertake School visits to monitor and evaluate the effectiveness of a school and its curriculum. School visits will help Governors to understand more about their School and the reality of School life. All governors are unpaid volunteers and are drawn from a wide variety of different backgrounds - those with experience at board level, but also those with early skills (where training can be offered) who wish to explore board leadership and develop their skills further. Becoming a school governor requires drive and commitment however there are many professional and personal rewards. We welcome applications from individuals who can bring a wide range of skills to the current LGB’s including expertise from their professional lives, educational and non educational.
