School governors are volunteers who support schools and help them to provide the best education they can for children and young people.
Governors come from all walks of life and bring their different skills and life experiences and their different perspectives into their governing teams. There is no need to be an expert but it is important that you:
are interested in education and in the welfare of children and young people
are able to work as part of a team
are comfortable asking questions
have time to commit to the role (probably between 5 and 10 hours a month during school term time)
