The role of a Foundation Governor in a Church of England School is an important one which is crucial to the life of our schools and the communities that they serve.

​Why should I be a Foundation Governor?

  • It is a way of being actively involved in the life of the local community.
  • It provides church members to actively engage with the lives of families in the parish, regardless of whether those families attend church or not.
  • It promotes the link between local church and local school.
  • It maintains a visible Christian presence in the local school.

For more information speak to your local clergy or PCC secretary, contact the local CE school to meet with the headteacher to discuss your interest and possible useful skills, complete the application form for a Foundation governor or contact  education@carlislediocese.org.uk.
