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.
