School governors play a vital role in promoting high standards of educational achievement. They share a common belief that children should receive the best possible standard of education in all areas of their development. This is in the interests of current and future pupils.
Members of governing bodies include:

School staff
Parents of pupils
Members of the public from all walks of life

Governors are committed to serving the best interests of the school. As unpaid voluntary public servants, they help to sustain their school’s identity and provide a link with the local community. An effective governing body is a source of enormous strength to the school.
School governance is the most important volunteering role in education.

If you would like to make a difference to children’s lives by helping them to realise their aspirations and expectations, please volunteer to be a school governor at Aston and Cote Primary. Please contact the school office for further information.

"Governors are now fully immersed in monitoring the school's effectiveness, wisely aligning their monitoring activities to the school's improvement priorities." OFSTED 2018
