Supporting children in North Halifax at Lee Mount Primary school

Do you want to make a difference to the life chances of children in North Halifax?

If your answer is yes, then….

Have you thought of becoming a school governor?

Anyone aged 18 or over can be a governor (but there are some exceptions) and you do not need to be a parent. There is no requirement for you to understand the education system, just the necessary skills, character, and time to contribute.

There is plenty of training and support available to help you learn about education and how to be a school governor.

As a governor, you will be able to:

  • use your own experience of education and life beyond school to inform conversations
  • develop and utilise your skills in a board-level environment
  • make a valuable contribution to education and your community
  • support and challenge the school so that it improves for pupils and staff

School governors make a valuable contribution to children’s education, opportunities, and futures.

Being a school governor is a challenging but hugely rewarding role. It will give you the chance to make a real difference to young people, give something back to your local community and use and develop your skills in a board-level environment.

Are you willing to offer some of your time to help Lee Mount School as a school governor?

Please contact the school if you are interested and want to know more by telephone: 01422 352856 Or email: and someone will get back to you for an informal conversation
