What do governors do? 

This information is taken from www.rbwm.gov.uk
 

Governors have three main roles:

The strategic role, which is about:

  • Developing and supporting the vision for the school
  • Developing aims for the school
  • Planning so that all pupils can achieve the very best they can

The Governors' Role in School Improvement - Act as a 'Critical Friend' by:

  • Monitoring and evaluating the school's work
  • Visits to the school
  • Ensuring that all meetings are effective by reading all papers prior to the meeting and preparing their questions and any areas that they would like to discuss at the meeting

The Accountability role of the Governing Body - 

  • Reporting on progress
  • Reciprocal accountability between school leaders and governors
  • Being accountable to parents and the community they serve

School governors make important collective decisions and the governing body is answerable to parents and the community. The responsibilities of the governing body include:

  • Promoting high standards of education and achievement
  • Planning the school's long-term future
  • Setting the school's aims and values
  • Appointing senior staff including the Headteacher
  • Budgetary allocation and control
  • Deciding on the number of staff to be employed
  • Making sure that the curriculum is broad and balanced
