Governors and trustees are the ‘back-bone’ of schools.

They are one of the largest volunteer forces in the country and effective governance is key to strong school improvement. 

The Schools Alliance for Excellence will work closely with the Local Authority, the Regional Schools Commissioner, Cognus, Strictly 4S and  other governance training organisations to ensure we work in a joined-up way to ensure we’re as effective as possible in helping schools to improve. 

Help includes:

  • Sign-posting to training to ensure that governors have access to high quality advice and guidance
  • Access to resources, regular briefings and newsletters to ensure that governors and trustees are kept up to date on key issues and new developments in the world of school and academy governance
  • Support for governing bodies from National Leaders of Governors or Advanced Skills Governors
  • Support and Challenge to maintained governing bodies through our delivery of Surrey’s statutory school improvement strategy
  • Support for Governor recruitment to help governing boards and trusts recruit members with the skills to make a difference in your school

"Trustees and governors are, in my view, the unsung heroes of the system."
