Becoming a school governor

Have you ever thought of becoming a School Governor?

Do you have:

  • An interest in our children’s education?
  • A desire to make a difference?
  • The ability to work as part of a team?

Then why not serve your local community and use your skills and expertise by becoming a School Governor?

You will be joining a team of volunteers whose first priority is to ensure that children get the best possible start in life.  Join them and help to shape the future by making a positive contribution to the raising of standards of education in Sefton schools.

The Local Authority offers wide ranging training and support for governors. Each governing board is encouraged to have a member who co-ordinates the training. All governors receive a termly mailing from Governor Services, including a termly newsletter and guidance materials, a telephone helpline and termly meetings to keep you up to date on current issues and changes to legislation.
