What is the Governing Board?
The governing board 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 boards are responsible to parents, funders and the community. The governing board'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 board:
