About Govas

GOVAS works closely with the Stockport Children and Young People Directorate, but we are a fully independent association of governors affiliated to the equally independent National Governors Association. Every governor in Stockport is automatically a GOVAS member (as long as your institution pays their subscriptionof £10.00 PA)and our Management Committee is made up exclusively of serving volunteer governors in Stockport’s schools – nursery, primary secondary and special. Our biggest strength is our links with all the school governors in Stockport through our newsletter, special communications, and this website.  


MPs met on Thursday 5th November to debate the school funding system, demonstrating the unanimous support of those in attendance for a National Funding Formula to tackle the lack of fairness in the current system.

Stockport MPs Ann Coffey and Mary Robinson both spoke out in support of a change to the current system. This remains an issue that GOVAS will continue to highlight and we would urge all governors to use whatever means are at their disposal to publicise how unfairly Stockport schools are treated.
