Governors

 What is the Governing Body? 

 

The governing body is a group of dedicated volunteers who help to shape the style and direction of the school.   There are: parent governors who are elected by the parent body, staff governors who work at the school and are elected by their colleagues,  local authority governors who are appointed by the local authority and foundation governors who are appointed by the church and Diocese.

 

What do Governors do? 


Governors work as a team.  They are responsible for making sure the school provides a high quality education and for raising educational standards in school. Governors set policies that promote effective ways of teaching and learning; they do this together with the Headteacher, who is responsible for the day to day management of the school. 

Governing bodies are responsible to parents, funders and the community.  The governing body's main role is to ask challenging questions to be sure that the school is doing its best; this role is often called being a ‘critical friend’.  The governing body:

  • is accountable for the performance of the school to parents and the wider community
  • plans the school's future direction
  • selects the Headteacher and Deputy
  • makes decisions on the school's budget and staffing
  • makes sure the national curriculum is taught
  • decides how the school can encourage pupil's spiritual, moral and social development
  • maintains the building, the grounds and all resources (such as computers and the furniture etc.)
  • and …  makes sure the school provides for all its pupils, including those with special needs.
