The role of the school governor and governing bodies

The role of the school governor is demanding but very rewarding and is a excellent way to give back to your local community.  School governing bodies are responsible for working with the school to ensure that it delivers a good quality education. Together with the headteacher, who is responsible for day-to-day management, they set the school’s aims and policies.

Key roles of governors:

  • To ensure clarity of vision, ethos and strategic direction.
  • To hold the headteacher to account and ensuring the educational performance of the school, its students, the quality of our residential provision and the performance management of all staff.
  • To oversee the financial performance of the school, ensure we offer value for money and make sure our money is well spent.

They also carry out a number of other important duties, which include:

  • Determining how the school’s budget is spent.
  • The appointing and dismissing of staff.
  • Hearing appeals and grievances.
  • Setting standards for pupils’ behaviour and discipline.
  • Making sure school buildings are welcoming and safe.
  • Setting and monitoring the school’s aims and policies.
