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 will be debating school governors and school improvement on October 8th at 12.30. This is a good opportunity to raise the profile of governors with your MP. Please e-mail your MP asking them to attend. You can find the address on the Parliament UK website. Please include your school's name in the e-mail so your MP knows it is in their constituency.
