Governors

The governing body is made up from parents, the community, staff and the local authority (LA). Some governors are elected and other governors are appointed. However all governors are responsible as a corporate body to all stakeholders: parents, the children, the staff, the community and the L.A. Governors are all volunteers and are not paid for their work.

The full governing body meets termly. Some of its responsibilities are delegated to committees which have their own meetings.

School governors make collective decisions as part of the governing body whose main function is to help raise the educational standards and performance of a school by supporting the work of the head teacher and staff. Governors make important decisions on how a school will be run.

The main roles are:
1.To provide a strategic view- To help with school improvement so that pupils learn effectively
2. To act as a “critical friend”- To provide the head teacher and staff with support. “Critical means asking questions to monitor the school’s effectiveness. “Friend” means that governors support the staff and the school.
3. To ensure accountability – The governing body is responsible for ensuring high quality education for all pupils. Governors are accountable for the school’s performance.

Some of the things expected of governors include:
• Promoting high standards of achievement
• Planning the school’s long-term future
• Setting the school’s aims, values and ethos
• Budgetary allocation and control
• Appointing senior staff
