Welcome to Governance in Buckinghamshire

Last updated:

Thank you for volunteering to become a governor in Buckinghamshire. The education system and our schools could not exist without the dedication, time and effort of every single volunteer governor, both locally and nationally.

Working collectively, governing boards across Buckinghamshire represent an impressive network, able to exchange ideas and experience whilst supporting each other through challenging times and developing partnership arrangements whether in a maintained school a federation or a Multi Academy Trust.

On volunteering to become a governor you will probably have tried to understand what is expected of you, how much time it will demand and how you can contribute. Getting off to a positive start will mean that you can contribute effectively and more quickly; preparation is key to your success.

We have pulled together useful resources, both from with Buckinghamshire Council and beyond, to support you in your new role.
