Oxfordshire Governors’ Association aims to promote cooperation between schools in order to improve the quality of education in Oxfordshire.
Run by a small group of volunteer Governors we are independent of the Local Authority but work in partnership to support the work of members of Governing Boards across the county.
We appoint representatives to consultative groups in Oxfordshire and hold Open Meetings in support of Governors’, including Headteachers’ needs.
We hold Local Association membership of the National Governors’ Association (NGA) but actively promote Governing Bodies to hold NGA membership in their own right in order to give everyone, including clerks, access to NGA’s information and guidance documents.
Want to know more? We now have our own website.
Please also look out for the letters we send out via clerks flagging up important issues and providing more information about our meetings.

Through evidence based research Dr. Goodall has explored how the achievement between children from different backgrounds can be narrowed by supporting parents' engagement with learning.
Come and hear first-hand from an expert why we should be meeting this challenge better in all our schools and some practical ideas of how to do it.
