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 each half-term for Committee and Full Governing Body meetings at 7pm 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.
