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.  


Put the date in your diary NOW! Stockport Governors' Conference 2014 will be on

SATURDAY, MARCH 29th, 2014

GOVAS and the Governor Support Officers at the Town Hall are working together on the detail of the Conference, and already have some ideas to make it the best ever. But it's not too late to have your suggestions, so if you have an good ideas let us know and we can feed them into the process. We're interested in topics for workshops as well as topics for short presentations, so get your Governing Body thinking.
