What Governors Do

There are three main reasons why governors are necessary:

  1. They make sure the school is run according to the needs and wishes of the local community.
  2. They support, promote and protect the interests of the school, its pupils and staff.
  3. They are a visible form of accountability.

School governors come from a variety of backgrounds. They are not expected to be experts in educational matters. That’s the responsibility of the headteacher and the teaching staff of the school.

The role of the school governor and governing body is:

  • to take a strategic overview of school related issues;
  • to set a broad framework within which the headteacher can work;
  • concerned with the general oversight of the conduct of the school.

Please note: The headteacher is responsible for the organisation and management within the school.

 

As a school governor we are expected to:

  • Work as a member of the governing body for the best interests of the school;
  • Attend the regular meetings and special meetings of the governing body;
  • Serve on committees which deal with the governing body's legal obligations;
  • Become familiar with general educational issues and developments;
  • Take an interest in school activities;
  • Promote the school within the local community;
  • Commit time to the duties and responsibilities of a governor;

We are involved in:

  • staff appointments and discipline
  • pupil discipline
  • the school curriculum
  • the financial management of the school
  • school development plan and action plan
  • health and safety matters
  • governor training.
