Governors play a vitally important role in our schools, contributing to school effectiveness, management and, if a foundation governor, maintaining the Christian ethos of the school. Through the Diocese of St Albans Educational Trust (its ‘Umbrella Trust’), the Diocesan Board of Education also has a role in the appointment of Members and Directors (governors) for diocesan academies and free schools. The Trust is also the diocesan corporate member for many of its standalone and multi-academy trusts.
For help and advice on governor-related issues, please contact Governance Adviser Belinda Copson on firstname.lastname@example.org / 07990 001071.
For foundation governor appointment processes, please get in touch with Vicki Barrière on email@example.com / 01727 818170.
We are very grateful for the support given to our schools by their governors.
