What are School Governors and what do they do?

The School Governors are like a Board of Directors who have legal duties, powers, and responsibilities.


All governors serve for a term of four years. We are a ‘critical friend’ to the school, supporting its aims and values and helping it to strive and achieve the highest standards possible in all aspects of school life.


The 3 main roles of the Governing Body are:


  • Ensuring that the school has a clarity of vision and strategic direction.


  • To hold the Head Teacher to account for the school’s educational performance.


  • To oversee the financial performance of the school and make sure that its money is well and appropriately spent.
