What do Governors do?

  • Together with the headteacher they are responsible for making sure our school provides good quality education.
  • They provide challenge and support to the headteacher and the leadership team, drawing on their knowledge and experience outside of the school environment.
  • They make decisions together on matters such as performance, targets, school policies and school development plans.
  • They oversee the school budget and staffing as well as monitoring the impact of policies.
  • They report on school achievements and respond to inspection recommendations.
  • They hear appeals from pupils and staff and consider complaints.
  • They ask searching questions and act as a “critical friend” to the school leadership team.
