Our Governing Body


What does a school governor do? (from LA information leaflet)

Together with the head teacher, governors set the future direction for the school and decide how the school’s budget should be spent. Governing bodies make decisions collectively on matters such as performance targets, school policies and the school’s improvement plan.

Governors monitor the impact of policies and oversee the use of the school’s budget. They report to parents on the school’s achievements and respond to inspection recommendations. They hear appeals from pupils and staff and consider complaints.

Governors provide the head teacher with support and advice, drawing on their knowledge and experience. They may ask searching questions. The governing body must respect the head teacher’s position as professional leader of the school. Being a Governor is a voluntary, unpaid role.
