School Governors

Being a school governor is a very rewarding job. Governors have the opportunity to support the development of the school, helping to improve the education for the pupils.

What do Governors do?

• Promote high standards
• Set targets for pupil achievement
• Assist with managing the school’s budget
• Discuss current curriculum issues
• Devise action plans to bring about school improvement

Contact with members of the Governing Board should be made through the school office.

There is a team of governors at Godfrey Ermen, with representatives from St Michael’s Church Parochial Church Council (PCC), school staff, parents and the Local Authority (LA).

There are currently vacancies for a Diocesan foundation governor and 1 vacancy for a parent governor. Please click on the links to download information about the Parent Governor Role.
