School Governors

“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”

(The Governors Handbook)

The Role of the Governors

How do we carry out our role?

In addition to Full Governing Body meetings which are held 3 times per year, we also have 2 committees which meet throughout the year to look at specific aspects of the school – these committees have delegated powers.

Resources Committee – the functions of this committee include school finance, premises, staffing structures, staff pay and all things personnel related.

Achievement and Standards Committee – the functions of this committee include curriculum provision, performance data and the quality of teaching.

It is important for governors to visit the school and members of staff regularly to gain a sound understanding of the key priorities/actions for the school and how these are being implemented. It is also important to consider what impact the actions are having on the school and the children.

As governors we monitor progress against the priorities which have been set out in the School Development Plan. In order to do this, we have governors linked to specific areas who make a number of visits throughout the year and provide feedback to the Full Governing Body meetings.
