Governance

The role of a School Governor

Governors are one of the largest volunteer forces in the country and have an important part to play in raising school standards.  Silverdale Governing Body is part of Chorus Education Trust. The Trust Board is absolutely key to the effectiveness and strategic direction of the Trust, as are the school Governing Bodies to the individual school communities within the Trust. Trustees and School Governors provide strategic leadership and accountability. For more details visit the National Governor’s Association website. For full details of the governance of Chorus Education Trust visit their website here.
