Governor quotes

"As a parent, how a school works can be a bit of a mystery but being a governor has helped me understand a lot more about my children's education. Schools need a lively governing body to help shape and oversee how they are run and it is satisfying to feel that your views are valued and can have a positive influence. Being a governor though is more than just contributing to the school, I see it as a useful way of giving something back to the community in which I live."  Nichola Shaw


“Getting to grips with all the new information and terminology involved in education has been challenging.  A key part of the Governor role is to hold the school to account and ask challenging questions.  This can be difficult however, the relationships established are supportive and I am made to feel welcome in school.  Although all Governors need to know their school and how it is performing, one good aspect is that we get to focus on specific priorities for the school.  My focus is on Safeguarding.”  Karen Wallwork
