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.
If you would be interested in serving as a Stone Bay School governor please don’t hesitate to contact the school. We are particularly welcome applications from existing parents.
