Resources for Governors

Exeter Diocesan Board of Education has a dedicated and long term relationship with the work of School Governing bodies.

The Schools Team offers advice and guidance on a wide range of issues specific to the governance of Church of England Schools. The appointment of all foundation governors is undertaken via the Diocese and we offer training to all church school governors, often in conjunction with our local authority partners.

Your contact for foundation governor appointments is Sarah Owen, Governors’ Support: Tel: 01392 294938, Email Sarah or School Admissions and Governance Adviser: Christina Mabin, Email Christina
