Foundation Governor Vacancies

The role of a Foundation Governor provides many opportunities to support the amazing work of our schools; from supporting the headteacher, to having a say in the strategic direction of the school.  A Foundation Governor has a unique role in securing the Christian Distinctiveness of a school.  They also play an important part in ensuring there is a strong partnership between the school, the church and the community.

The Board of Education is always interested to hear from people who feel called to support schools in this way.  If you have already been in touch and are looking for the nomination form, it can be downloaded from the bottom of this page.  If you have any questions regarding the form, please contact Sue Edgar, Governance and Compliance Lead at susan.edgar@lincoln.anglican.org

Foundation governors play a very significant role in our church schools, they provide strong and sustainable links that root the schools as part of wider communities, and as part of the Diocesan family.  They assist schools in being built around key Christian values, and they play a key role in ensuring the school is led and shaped by the personal faith and commitment of their leaders. Foundation governors also ensure Religious Education is at the heart of the curriculum and is a core subject. In short, foundation governors are vital to the ongoing health and well-being of our church schools. 

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.

If you have the time, skills, and Christian commitment, please consider becoming a Foundation Governor.
