Role of Governors

Every school has a Governing Body that is made up of the following:

 

  • Parents of children who attend the school
  • Teachers from the school
  • A non-teaching member of staff at the school
  • People appointed by the Local Education Authority
  • People living and working within the local community​

 

The Governors have a very important role to play. In conjunction with the Head teacher they are involved in:

 

  • Creating and implementing the schools vision
  • Making and authorizing financial decisions
  • Forming Policies and monitoring the curriculum
  • Setting appropriate challenge for the school
  • Actively pursuing the best interests of children and all associated with the school.

 

Governors usually serve for a period of four years and they require no special qualifications. All Governors are informed about their responsibilities and training is available. The Governing Body meets at least once a term and there are additional meetings for other business. Once a year Governors prepare a report for parents and they are invited to a meeting to discuss its contents.
