All ‘governors’ of state funded schools are automatically members of OGA and are welcome to attend our FREE Open meetings. However we do rely on Schools subscriptions to pay our running expenses (which are not excessive as we are all volunteers and have no paid employees). Our subscription charges are very modest at £10.00 for schools with less than 300 pupils and £15.00 for those with 300 or more, for the avoidance of doubt these are charges per school, not per multi-academy trust. This subscription has been unchanged since 2003, largely thanks to the generosity of many of our speakers.
Many schools subscribe via Oxfordshire County Council who collect the fees on our behalf, but others prefer to pay direct either via Bacs or by cheque. To facilitate this we have a proforma OGA Invoice for schools’ which they can use to pay us and keep their accounting records correct.
Please check the list that we have of schools that have of those schools subscribing to OGA for 2018-2019 . If your school is not included and you believe having a representative body for governors in Oxfordshire is worthwhile please ask at your next Governors meeting if your school would be able to subscribe. It is very time consuming for us to chase up schools individually.
