Have you thought about being a school governor? 

Being a school governor is a hugely rewarding role. It will give you the chance to make a real difference to the children of the Wallisdean Federation it will also allow you to develop your skills in a different environment.

We set the aims and objectives for the schools and set the policies and targets for achieving those aims and objectives. We monitor and evaluate the progress the schools are making and act as a source of challenge and support to the head teacher.
