An extract from a Review of Governance Inclusion: Governors are often an unseen, unknown stakeholder in the school. Many staff, parents and pupils will not know them or what function they perform. To help remedy this governors may like to volunteer to perform a few high-profile activities such as: 1. Meet and greet parents/pupils at the school gate. 2. Address the pupils at assembly with information/anecdotes / inspirational messages. 3. Create a powerpoint presentation / video that can be used in assembly / class / website to inform interested parties and staff about the governing body. 4. Being involved in doing surveys of opinion / knowledge to flag up any areas of concern or have evidence that action plans had good outcomes. 5. Acting as chair / minute taker for school council meetings. 6. Observing school processes / lessons / activities. Recording any points of interest and discussing with senior leaders. 7. Being a link governor for a specific aspect of the school. E.g. Training, attendance, SEN, 8. Having a regular surgery for parents/ pupils / staff to discus one-to-one with a governor ( probably with a focus in mind e.g. behaviour / resources / support etc ). Any thoughts ?
