Bishop's Certificate - Recognition of Outstanding Service to Governance

Outstanding serviceGovernors make up the largest voluntary work force within the country. Their role has changed from a largely passive one to one where they are required by government to take on more and more responsibilities.

As a Diocese, we are greatly indebted to the 1200 or so governors who serve our 84 Church Schools, including Foundation Governors who have a specific duty of care to uphold and maintain the Trust Deed of the school in ensuring the provision of a Christian education for the parish and local community.

As a response, Guildford Diocese is able to award a Bishop’s Certificate to recognise individual governors, (LA, parent, foundation or teacher) who have made a sustained and significant contribution to the life and work of a school.

Headteachers, Chairs of Governors or groups of governors may nominate a governor for this award, which may also be given retrospectively. Simply fill in the application form below, returning it to ​Jane Whittingdale.

Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your minds, so that you may discern what is the will of God—what is good and acceptable and perfect.

Romans 12:2
