Governors’ new Barnsley group

Have your say

A NEW association for all Barnsley school governors holds its first formal meeting on October 5.

A steering group of a dozen governors has been working since the turn of the year to start the Barnsley Governors’ Association, the first of its kind in the borough.

All governors of schools throughout the borough are automatically members of the BGA, and this will be their first chance to find out about the association’s plans.

The BGA is an independent, non-political body which aims to support, promote and improve school governance, and is committed to raising attainment, achievement and aspiration for all pupils in Barnsley.
