School Governance

The role of a school governor is demanding but very rewarding and is a good way to give back to your local community.  School governing bodies are responsible for working with school to ensure that it delivers a good quality education. Together with the Headteacher, who is responsible for day-to-day management, they set the school's aims and policies.


Key roles of Governors:

  • To ensure clarity of vision, ethos and strategic direction
  • To hold the headteacher to account for the educational performance of the school and its pupils, and the performance management of staff
  • To oversee the financial performance of the school and make sure its money is well spent 


They also carry out a number of other important duties, which include:

  • Determining how the school's budget is spent
  • Staff recruitment
  • Hearing appeals and grievances
  • Forming policy on the school's curriculum and collective worship
  • Setting standards for students' behaviour and discipline
  • Making sure school buildings are welcoming and safe
  • Setting and monitoring the school's aims and policies
