Diocese of Chichester Education


Welcome to Church School Governance in the Diocese of Chichester

As a Diocese we very much appreciate the significant role and huge contribution that all Church School Governors make to our Church of England Schools.

Governors are there to ensure that all pupils receive a high standard of education and high-level of support for their well-being, thus enabling every individual child and young person to reach their full potential in life.

Foundation governors make a particular contribution to the effectiveness of our schools through maintaining and developing the Christian distinctiveness of the school, building strong links with the local Church and parish and offering support and appropriate challenge to school leaders.

As an Education Team we are here to support you and offer training and advice covering a wide range of aspects of governance and leadership in Church schools.
