Becoming a Governor

We are an amazing school, proud to sit at the heart of the community.  Our staff work tirelessly to ensure our children are able to fulfil their potential and feel confident to take on the world.  The children are a credit to the school and their families and we need to ensure we strive to improve every day!  We are fortunate to have a strong and supportive governing body and we are looking for new members to join.

What do Governors do?  It is perhaps easier to say what we don't do!  Governors are not inspectors and do not manage the day to day operation of the school.  That is the role of the fantasitc Headteacher and her leadership team.  We support and challenge the school to ensure:

  •  our vision is being turned into reality
  • our ethos is being embedded
  • progress is being made against the Strategic Plan

To do this we:

  • ensure the Headteacher is accountable for the educational performance of the school, it's pupils and staff
  • oversee the financial performance of the school
  • make sure the building is welcoming, inspiring and safe.

To help us do this, Bilsthorpe Flying High Academy would welcome enquiries from anyone who could be interested in becoming a governor.  Me Peter Shreyhane (Chair of Governors) can be contacted through the school for further information on 01623 870772 or  

We are a supportive governing body and will provide training and ongoing support to help you become an outstanding governor who really makes a difference to our children.
