School Governors

Our vision is to become a child friendly city where children are valued, supported, enjoy growing up, and look forward to a bright future. Effective governance is a vital component of strong school leadership which ensures every child gets the best education. 

Purpose of the service
We develop strong accountable governing bodies to set a standard of excellence and ensure statutory duties are met. We are focused on improving teaching and learning by recruiting and supporting highly skilled, well-informed and well-trained governors.
