Today, we are delighted to celebrate National School Governors’ Awareness Day. On this important day, Governors for Schools would like to sincerely thank all our volunteers for their hard work and commitment to schools across England and Wales. Thank you!

As you navigate the challenges of school life during the current cost of living crisis, while supporting school leaders and board colleagues along the way, rest assured that your impact is felt by young people and educators throughout the country. Your selfless commitment to governance is to be commended and we hope that you can join us today in celebrating.

Head to our event platform, for free and informative topical webinars, ask us questions at our virtual booth, and engage on socials – lots of organisations will be sharing content, useful articles, and inspiring stories. You can also share your message of support to school governors by using the hashtag #SchoolGovDay.

Keep up your excellent work and please know that we recognise and appreciate every volunteer who registers with our service.


Want to help even more schools? Invite friends and colleagues to volunteer as governors!

Do you know someone who is passionate about improving educational standards and ensuring all children are given the chance to succeed in life?

If you’d like to find out more about what the role entails, we are holding an informational webinar at 2pm – 3pm today as part of the National School Governors’ Awareness Day celebrations.
