Annual awards give deserved recognition for school governors

People don’t serve as school governors and trustees for the plaudits, and yet the work that governing boards do up and down the country has the capacity to positively affect the lives and futures of young people. Inspiring Governance recognises the vital work that governors and trustees do – and we would like to thank every volunteer for giving up their time and providing their skills to make our schools the best they can be.

And in the spirit of recognition, our partners the National Governance Association (NGA) are celebrating their annual ‘Outstanding Governance Awards’ in 2019 with nominations closing on 3 December 2018. This is a great opportunity to celebrate the impact that good governance has made. The awards are separated into four categories and more information can be viewed here:

Do you, or does someone you know, deserve recognition for their commitment to school governance?  If so, we urge you to make a nomination before the deadline of 23.59 on 3 December 2018. We would encourage you to get involved with these awards as there are few better ways to mark the amazing job that volunteers are doing up and down the country.

A governor at Fairfield Park Lower School talks about winning an NGA Award: “No one becomes a governor to win plaudits and awards, but we are delighted that the efforts and commitment of the governing board have been recognised’’.

This is a perfect opportunity to acknowledge the difference that governors, trustees, and clerks make throughout England –  so don’t miss out.
