Governors work with schools to improve services to children and young people.
Nottingham City Schools need you!
Governors work as part of a team supporting a school and the Head Teacher to decide the schools policy, help recruit staff and manage budgets.
We need people who have energy, enthusiasm and fresh ideas to support our schools.
You don't need to have had any previous experience or knowledge. Common sense, a genuine interest in education and commitment are the most important qualities that we're looking for.
Becoming a governor could be a way of contributing to your local school and learning new skills. You don't have to have a child at a Nottingham City school to become a governor.
Support for governors
The school governance service provides a support service for all governors. Each school has a dedicated clerk to offer advice and support at meetings and comprehensive training is available to both new and existing governors including a mentoring programme.
What governors do within schools
Governors attend governor meetings and committee meetings throughout the term. They act as a critical friend which involves monitoring and evaluating how the school is progressing, building a trusting relationship with the Head Teacher and staff.
