  • Becoming a Governor
    Visit the Blackburn Diocesan Board of Education's website for information about the roles and responsibilities of school governors and to express your interest in becoming one.

On 18 March 2016 the School Governance Constitution Regulations 2012 were amended so that all serving governors in maintained schools would be required to have an enhanced criminal records certificate (ECRC).

We can confirm that all governors at St. Matthew's Church of England Primary School with Brunel Nursery School have an ECRC.
