Our Governors

The Governing Body has corporate responsibility for the effectiveness of the school.  The majority of the Governors are 'Foundation Governors', meaning that they are elected or appointed by the local Parochial Church Council (of St Luke's, Skerton) or by the Diocese of Blackburn.  The Chair of Governors (acting) is Mr Geoff Goodwin.

Become a school governor

Each school has a governing body which comprises members of the local community, parents, teachers, staff and people appointed by the local authority.

What we expect from governors

Effective governors do not need educational expertise but do need to be committed to their school, willing to ask questions and act as a critical friend. They also need to be able to work as an enthusiastic member of the governing body team.

You do not need specialist knowledge or training to become a governor. It is your lay and community experiences that the governing body requires. However you will become knowledgeable by being a governor and this can help you to participate more fully in your local community or even open up opportunities for you personally, for example involvement in a Parents Teachers and Friends Association (PTFA), voluntary work within school or an awareness of new employment opportunities.

Realistically, as a school governor, you will need to attend one full governing body meeting each term. You will also be asked to serve on at least one committee which will probably meet once or occasionally twice a term. So that is about three meetings per term.

You will need to get to know your school well (if you don't already) preferably by visiting when the school is in session and the pupils are in school. However this may not always be possible and some governors keep in touch with school life through after school events such as fundraising or charity events, Parents Teachers and Friends Association meetings, sports days, school parties and holidays.
