The role of the Governors is to oversee the management of the school. The members of the Governing Body are drawn from parents, staff and the wider community.
Governors work with Senior Leaders in the strategic development of the school and in raising standards of achievement. Duties include setting the school’s vision, aims & objectives, approving the school budget and appointing the Head Teacher. The functions of a Governing Body are described in detail in the DfE’s Governance Handbook.
Governors must both support and challenge the Head Teacher, so need to gain an understanding of the school’s overall performance in order to explain its decisions and actions. They do this by attending regular meetings, carrying out school visits and meeting with senior leaders. They also attend training in order to keep up to date with the requirements of their role. Governors work as a team and make collective decisions.
The Full Governing Body meets at least twice a term to discuss the performance and management of the school and agree policy decisions. Working Groups meet as required.
