School Governors Celebrate Success

Governors who work to support schools across Cambridgeshire will be recognised at a special presentation evening next week.

Cambridgeshire County Council’s Governor Services and Education Personnel Management (EPM) have joined forces to celebrate the work of governors and to acknowledge particular achievements such as long service and significant contributions.

Certificates will also be presented to new governors who have completed a set of training courses.

Speakers at the event – which will be held at the Hinchingbrooke Performing Arts Centre in Huntingdon on Wednesday 3 July between 7pm and 9pm – will include the Acting Service Director for Learning Keith Grimwade, Head of Primary Sue Wilson and Cabinet Member for Education and Learning Cllr David Harty.

Awards and certificates will also be presented by Governor Services Manager Carol Peel and Vice-Chair of the Governor Advisory Group, Philip Hodgson.

Cllr Harty said: “Governors are the largest group of volunteers in the country. They provide invaluable support for our schools in Cambridgeshire and are totally committed to raising standards for our children and young. It is a pleasure to be given an opportunity to thank them personally at this presentation evening.”
