National Governors' Day

National School Governors Awareness Day has been created to raise awareness of governance in our schools and celebrate the contribution that governors and trustees make to improving the experiences of children and young people.

Being a school governor is a voluntary role and it is estimated that in England alone, there are in excess of 300,000 governors and trustees, all giving their time freely to support their schools and academies.

Amberley Parochial School is a Voluntary Aided School which means that our Governors have an important role in working with our Headteacher to determine the direction of the school. Our Governors are comprised of a varied group of parents/ex parents and members of the local community who care about the school and how it works best to benefit our children. The Governors bring a variety of skills and backgrounds to help make decisions on matters of staffing, admissions, premises, curriculum, finance and health and safety always remembering the three key roles Governors hold: 1. To provide a strategic view 2. To act as a critical friend 3. To ensure accountability

Our Full Governing Board meet six times a year and is made up of two staff governors, two parent governors, one local authority governor and seven foundation governors. We occasionally invite people with particular expertise to be associate members of the governing board; their role is to assist and advise the governors in the decision making process.

Here at Amberley, we are fortunate enough to have very active Governors who take pride in their role supporting the school. We are extremely grateful for their time, experience and support and today, on National Governor Awareness Day, would like to publicly thank them for their tireless efforts.
