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.
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.
