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.
Open Meetings for the Summer & Autumn terms
The primary audience is Governors, but other school staff are welcome to join us. To register for either of these meetings please email the OGA secretary Judith Bennetts directly.
Please note that whilst attendance is FREE, prior booking is essential.
