Chairs of Governors' Email Accounts

All chairs of governors' have the opportunity to access a school email account (eg which some sections of the Council use for school-related communication. Chairs' need to undertake regular housekeeping (i.e. filing or deleting messages) to ensure that the inbox has room to accommodate incoming emails.

If your Governing Board is having problems with access to this service, or if you need your password resetting, please contact your school's ICT technical support team. (Some schools may have their own technical support team on-site).

New users should contact their school's ICT technical support team who will advise on the procedure for set up as a user and completion of an on-line acceptable use form.

The Schools’ Finance Team will only use official Council email addresses for sending through budgetary information etc with the appropriate encryption in place given confidentiality and data protection requirements. Therefore, it is very important that chairs' ensure they have access to that account and monitor it.

The School Governance Team also uses chairs' personal email addresses to communicate, with permission. If you are a chair of governors and would like to be added to our mailing list please email School Governance.
