A council has launched a new campaign to address the 450 school governor vacancies that exist across Suffolk.
Suffolk County Council launched its Govern Suffolk Schools campaign today (Monday) – with the aim of recruiting people to put their skills into Suffolk schools to benefit the lives of children and young people across the county.
A governor takes part in strategic discussions, deciding the schools vision and ethos, determining school budgets and other similar tasks. They are required to act in the best interests of all the pupils of the school and behave in a professional manner.
Gordon Jones, cabinet member for children's services, education and skills, said: 'Becoming a school governor is a fantastic opportunity to be part of a team that can positively influence children's lives. The Govern Suffolk Schools campaign is really important with School Governors playing such a vital role in our education system. We need more Suffolk residents to put their skills into our schools to continue driving up standards.'
