Role of the Governors

Every school has a Governing Body that is made up of the following:


  • Parents of children who attend the school

  • Teachers from the school

  • A non-teaching member of staff at the school

  • People appointed by the Local Education Authority

  • People living and working within the local community​


The Governors have a very important role to play. In conjunction with the Head teacher they are involved in:


  • Creating and implementing the schools vision

  • Making and authorising financial decisions

  • Forming Policies and monitoring the curriculum

  • Setting appropriate challenge for the school

  • Actively pursuing the best interests of children and all associated with the school.


Governors usually serve for a period of four years and they require no special qualifications. All Governors are informed about their responsibilities and training is available. The Governing Body meets at least once a term and there are additional meetings for other business. Once a year Governors prepare a report for parents and they are invited to a meeting to discuss its contents.
