Business urged to help schools

Have your say

Barnsley and Rotherham Chamber of Commerce is calling on local business people to volunteer to become school governors.

The Chamber has joined forces with education and enterprise initiative Rotherham Ready to back the School Governor’s One-Stop Shop, which is helping to recruit governors for schools across Yorkshire.

The Chamber says 61 schools in Rotherham currently have vacancies on their governing bodies for the new academic year.
