Governors

Welcome to our Governors’ Section.

 

What are School Governors?

School governors provide strategic leadership and accountability in schools. They appoint headteachers and other staff.

Governors have an important part to play in raising school standards. The role of the governing body is absolutely key to the effectiveness of a school. 

 

What do Governors do?

Governors hold the main responsibility for finance in schools, and it is governors who work with the headteacher to make decisions about balancing resources.

The role of the governing body is a strategic one. It has three core strategic functions:

  • 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

Governors do not get involved in the day-to-day management of the school.  That is the headteacher’s responsibility.
