Comment on this story on the

The governing body is a group made up of people from the local community, school staff and parents who together oversee the development of the school.

Governors do not manage the school, that is the responsibility of the head teacher and leadership team. But they do help determine the aims and values of the school, the priorities for development and help to monitor that the decisions they are making are having the desired effect. 

Governors are not expected to be experts but need to be willing to work as part of a team, read papers, attend meetings and ask constructive questions. There is free training available and plenty of advice and support from the school and other members of the governing body.

Members of the community with an interest in Brentford School for Girls have invaluable experience to contribute. Each governor’s contribution will reflect their own experience and as a governor individuals need to be willing to consider the interests of all stake holders in the school. 

Being a governor is a good way of contributing to the community whilst meeting new people and encountering new challenges. It is an enhancement to your CV.
