 Who are Governors and what do they do?  

School Governors are one of the largest volunteer forces in the country made up of people who want to make a positive contribution to children's education. They have an important part to play in raising school standards.

The role of the governing board is absolutely key to the effectiveness of a school. They must provide strategic management and act as a critical friend to support and challenge the head teacher and staff ensuring the school makes good progress towards achieving its aims and objectives.

They do this by:

  • Setting a vision, values and ethos of the school
  • Setting the aims and objectives for the school and setting the targets to achieve these
  • Determining the schools staffing structure and key staffing policies and the principles to be used by school leaders to set other school policies
  • Setting and managing the school budget by putting in place a robust financial management system that ensures best value for money
  • Rigorously monitoring and evaluating the performance of the head teacher
