Volunteer to aid school as a governor
An appeal is being made for people to volunteer to become primary school governors.
About 20% of governor places in schools across south-east Kent are currently vacant, especially in primaries.
So now the hunt is on to find skilled volunteers who can lend their time and expertise to help them continue to improve.
SGOSS – Governors for Schools is working in partnership with Kent County Council to appeal for new volunteers to come forward.
John Viner, chair of governors at Willesborough Junior School in Ashford, said: “Becoming a governor is a rewarding way to make a real contribution to the development of our young people.
“Governing boards are increasingly professional, so volunteers need not be experts in education, nor do they have to be a parent. Volunteers are able to contribute from their skillset, whatever that may be.”
