The Role of the Governing Body
School governors, together with the headteacher, are responsible for the overall educational and financial health of the school. They are all unpaid volunteers who meet regularly (approximately once a month) to discuss and decide upon all aspects of school management such as appointing staff, monitoring the budget, maintaining the premises and reviewing the curriculum. They have to build an in depth knowledge of the school and become our critical friends. The governing body is a legal entity, and governors execute their individual responsibilities collectively. In short, the governors are best thought of as trustees of the school who act in the interests of current and future pupils and staff.
We greatly value the professionalism and commitment of our governors. We have vacancies for new governors fairly regularly. If you may be interested in becoming a school governor, do let us know.
The DfE's Governors' Handbook describes the core functions of the Governing Body as:
1) Ensuring clarity of vision, ethos and strategic direction;
2) Holding the headteacher to account for the educational performance of the school and its pupils, and the performance management of staff; and
3) Overseeing the financial performance of the school and making sure its money is well spent.
