School governor recruitment resources

Norfolk County Council has launched a campaign to attract people aged 18+ who can use their skills and life experience to help shape the future of Norfolk's children by becoming school governors.

Schools, academies and multi-academy trusts (MAT) can help to promote this campaign by sharing our social media posts below on their platforms, adding information to their website and mentioning the campaign in their letters and newsletters for parents. There is also a zip file that you can download of five images each for Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter which you can use in other communications too.
