Could you be a school governor?

If any readers are interested in finding out more about being a school governor please contact either of us.
Paul was a governor of Southdown Infants from 1989-2013, Ralph Allen for 8 years and The Link for 6.
Dine is and has been a governor at Moorland Infants for 6 years. 

Dear Councillor Crossley,

I hope this finds you well.

My name is Amy and I am writing to you from SGOSS – Governors for Schools, a national charity formed by the Department of Education to help recruit skilled and committed school governors from business and professional backgrounds. Our service is free to schools, volunteers and supporting organisations. 

SGOSS will be in Bath and North East Somerset from 7th to 30th September hosting a recruitment drive, with the support of Bath and North East Somerset Council, to promote this fantastic volunteering opportunity to local organisations. I would love to know if you could help us to promote school governance within your ward by promoting our services to your local business contacts or by putting SGOSS in touch with local organisations that you feel could benefit from this volunteering opportunity. Additionally, if you yourself felt you might have the time to be a school governor, we know that schools in your area would greatly appreciate governors with your experience, skills and above all, local knowledge.

Governors work alongside the school’s senior leadership team to set strategic direction, monitor school performance and oversee the school’s finances, whilst ensuring every child receives the best possible education. As you can see, it is essential schools recruit people with the right skills to fulfil the role and I have attached our volunteer brochure which outlines the personal and professional development benefits to individual volunteers.  

If you would like to have a conversation regarding how you could help us to promote school governance or if you would like any assistance in applying yourself, please do not hesitate to get in touch. 

I look forward to hearing from you.

Best regards,


Amy Parsons
Area Manager
