Governor Vacancies

An important role of the Lincoln Diocesan Board of Education is to offer support, in the appointment of foundation governors, to Church of England schools in the Diocese of Lincoln.

The Diocese appoints foundation governors to Church of England schools. These governors have a particular responsibility to support the Christian values of the church school by monitoring Christian distinctiveness and collective worship. They also play an important role in ensuring there is a strong partnership between the school, the church and the community.

We are now seeking to recruit skilful volunteers to serve as foundation governors in Church of England schools in Lincolnshire:


Leasingham St Andrew’s  - 2 vacancies

Welton St Mary’s

Louth St Michael’s

A governing body needs people who bring their knowledge and skills of the working world. Together with the senior leadership of the school, governors ensure that the highest quality of education is being provided for pupils, enabling them to be successful adults of tomorrow.

As a foundation governor, you will have the opportunity to make a positive difference to the educational experiences and outcomes of children and young people.
