We are moving to GOV.UK and the DfE website will be closing down soon. More information.
GovernorLine is a professional helpline offering email and telephone support across all aspects of school life, to school governors, clerks and individuals involved directly in school governance in England.
It provides free professional and expert advice – each of the GovernorLine staff is currently serving on a governing body and is backed by legal, financial, employment, and health and safety experts. If the staff can't help you directly, they will put you in touch with someone who can.
GovernorLine has its own website, from where you can find out more about the service as well as access an email support facility.
If you would prefer to ring, the service is available free, seven days a week: 9am – 10pm weekdays, 11am – 4pm weekends (excluding public and bank holidays).
Telephone: 0800 072 2181
