Our governors hold an important public office and we are asked to ensure that their identity is published to the school and wider community.
Governors are the strategic leaders of our schools and have a vital role to play in making sure every child gets the best possible education. Governing bodies should have a strong focus on three core strategic functions: Ensuring clarity of vision, ethos and strategic direction; Holding the headteacher to account for the educational performance of the school and its pupils, and the performance management of staff; and overseeing the financial performance of the school and making sure its money is well spent. The duties of a school governor include: Setting the strategic direction, policies and objectives for the school Approving the budget Reviewing progress against the budget and objectives Challenging and supporting senior staff Playing a part in appointing staff By law, governing bodies meet at least three times every year, as a Full Governing Body, where the ongoing business of committees, the governing body and the school are discussed, reported on and where decisions are taken by a majority vote. Most of the work of governors, however, is done at committee level. If you would like further information on the role of a school governor, please do not hesitate to contact the school office.
