Governor of two schools?

Does anyone have experience of this?

I'm a governor of my child's current infant school - co opted not a parent governor . She's moving to yr 3 in sept - totally separate junior school with no overlap of staff, budget etc - and I've been invited to join the board of governors there.

I won't leave the infant school board, I've committed to that for the next 2 yrs at least. I love the school and the management team are amazing to work with.

I have the time to give to both, and both are outstanding schools with no major issues and so far no budget issues (for the next academic year anyway...)

Id like to join the board of the new school too - Is it possible? Conflict of interest?

At least two of the governors on the board in on are at two schools, so I imagine it’s allowed. Smile

There shouldn't be a conflict of interest as they're operating as two separate schools. You can be a governor to more than one school it would just have to be noted in declarations of interest.

I have known governors do this (former clerk). I think they’re mad but if you have time go for it!

You can be on more than 1.

I would say that a linked infant and junior might be a conflict of interest. KS1-2 progress for example.

Oh my goodness, do you have the time to manage both?!

Hats off to you, I couldnt even manage one governor role.
