Serving as a school governor

A new video from the Transferors Representatives’ Council presents an overview of the role of a transferor governor in controlled schools in Northern Ireland. The video outlines the creative opportunities and responsibilities of governors in the promotion of a positive Christian ethos in their school. Being a governor is both a rewarding and challenging role. Governors are asked to attend meetings in their school on a regular basis. They will deal with all aspects of governance of the school, including finance, staffing issues, appointments, forward planning, safeguarding, complaints and inspections.

The Transferors Representatives’ Council represents the Church of Ireland, Presbyterian Church in Ireland, and Methodist Church in Ireland, and more information on serving as a governor is available at www.ireland.anglican.org/children–youth/education
