The Governor's Role
A school's governing body is a vital link to school life. Briefly, the Governing Body has three main roles. These are:
1. To take an overview of the school by being involved in the strategic planning and allocation of resources.
2. To set up and keep under review the broad framework within which the Headteacher and staff should run the school.
3. To focus on the key issues of raising standards of achievement, establishing high expectations and promoting effective teaching and learning.
In practical terms, this means having an involvement in and approving all of the school’s policies, the school self evaluation programme and the school development and improvement plan. It has many other responsibilities covering such areas as finance, premises, curriculum and personnel. As you can see the governors have a responsibility in practically all aspects of school life to ensure accountability.
The relationship between the governors and the school has been described as that of a critical friend. We are not trying to do the teacher’s job! We are blessed at our school with a highly professional team and our aim is to give the head and his staff all the necessary support they need to do the job to the best of their ability.
All governors may be contacted via the school.
