They are volunteers with huge duties and not much thanks – but now with their very own app
Who would be a school governor? It takes time, effort, commitment, sensitivity and drive – and then there's the politics. And, if all goes badly wrong, they are financially liable.
Thankfully, the role is so important that communities do find the volunteers to support their schools. And there's a wide range of support for them, including their own app, Modern Governor (for Apple and Android), which was launched in 2014 and is now going into its second version.
