Being a school governor can be so rewarding
The Bolton News recently wrote an article on the rewards of becoming a school governor, as highlighted by our Chair of Governors at SS Simon and Jude CE Primary School, Mr Ned Solanki.
Mr Solanki has been a part of the school’s journey from being graded Ofsted inadequate, to outstanding, in just a few short years of incredibly hard work, as well as the school’s conversion to academy status.
The article states:
‘It is seeing the children smile as they enter school which makes Ned Solanki’s role as chair of governors at SS Simon and Jude’s CE Primary so rewarding... He stepped up to the mark and has helped take the school from special measures to one of the best in the country. Now he is one of the first — if not the first — in Bolton to be made a “national leader of governance”. These are highly effective chairmen of governors who use their skills and experience to support another governing body leader to improve their school’s performance.’
Mr Solanki has spent much of his own time volunteering to help the school develop their provision, providing support and challenge to senior leaders; he is now working to help develop the governing bodies of new schools to join the academy trust.
