What do Governors Do?

School governors provide strategic leadership and accountability in schools. Governors appoint the head teacher and deputy and ho hold the main responsibility for finance in schools, working with the headteacher to make the tough decisions about balancing resources.

The role of the governing board is a strategic one, its key functions are to:

  • set the aims and objectives for the school
  • set the policies for achieving those aims and objectives
  • set the targets for achieving those aims and objectives
  • monitor and evaluate the progress the school is making towards achievement of its aims and objectives
  • be a source of challenge and support to the headteacher (a critical friend)

Our school has 14 governors who meet on the last Thursday of each month at 6pm to review school progress.  In addition governors also take the opportunity to visit during the school day to speak with pupils, staff and senior leaders to ensure we are all moving forward on our learning journey.  The table above indicated the category of governor and also areas of specific responsibility within the school.

We have no current vacancies but do have other volunteering roles in school so please contact the school office if you would like to make a contribution to the life of Bewick Bridge Community Primary School.
