Joint letter to celebrate school governors and trustees

It’s national Volunteers’ Week and we want to celebrate and thank every one of the quarter of a million people who give their time freely to help ensure pupils in state schools achieve.

We want to thank everyone who has signed up to become a school governor, those who are already governors and those who have recently been appointed. You can join in the celebrations by sharing your story with us on social media – just don’t forget to tag us @InspiringGov and use #VolunteersWeek.

In celebration of Volunteers’ Week the National Governance Association, the Association of School and College Leaders and the National Association of Head Teachers have published a joint letter to thank school governors and trustees for their remarkable contribution to education.

If you’re interested in making a difference in your community, developing your skills and experience, and making a difference to the lives of young people, why not sign up today?
