I am a school governor at Uplands Manor Primary School in Smethwick, Sandwell. I've been a governor for two years now and chair of governors for the last year. I think that even now I still have a lot to learn about being a governor so I have decided to create this weblog to chart my progress and relay what I've learnt so far. I hope that this weblog will give you an insight into what it's like to be a governor and maybe even if only in a small way, this site might help other governors who are just starting out.

If you are a governor, would like to become a governor, or would like to find out about what governors do then please get in touch.
