School Governors

Governors normally meet once a term to receive reports from the Headteacher on the life and work of the school.

Members of staff also report to Governors at the termly meetings, and this usually takes the form of an in-depth look at some aspect of the whole curriculum.

Termly meetings are held at the school and are now open to the public.

This of course means that parents can attend as observers, although governors retain the right to take certain agenda items as confidential.

With the wider powers given them by recent legislation Governors have a very significant role to play in ensuring that, along with the Headteacher and colleagues, they move the school forward in a coherent, cohesive way.

The role of school governors:
  • Set the vision for the school’s future

  • Decide what is taught

  • Set standards of behaviour

  • Interview and select staff

  • Decide how the school budget is spent

  • Challenge the school leaders about performance
