Becoming a Governor

Posted in Uncategorised

All governors are volunteers. Governors do not need to be education experts. The most effective governors listen, think and ask questions.


Governors do not have any powers as individuals. The governing body exercises its authority collectively.


The main qualifications are:


•a belief that education is important;

•an interest in the role of schools in the community;

•an ability to work with others;

•an ability to assimilate a wide range of information and data;

•a willingness to learn;

•sound communication skills; and 

•being prepared to give time to doing the job well.


Schools are fascinating places. Being a governor can be very rewarding because you are:


•investing in the next generation;

•using your personal qualities and expertise to help the school, its pupils and staff;

•developing new skills;

•acquiring new knowledge;

•making new friends; and 

•developing a sense of partnership and involvement in the community.


More detailed information is available from the West Sussex County Council website and details of the application process are available from the Clerk to the Governors.
