What is a school governor?


Governors are volunteers who collectively make up the school’s Governing Board. The overall responsibility of the Governing Board is to support the school to provide the best possible education for all children.

What are governors responsible for?


· Helping to decide on the school’s values and aims, agreeing plans on the future direction of the school and checking on progress with these plans

· Acting as a critical friend to the Head Teacher to support and challenge them in managing the school

· Deciding how the money allocated is spent

· Interviewing and appointing members of staff

· Making sure that the school is accountable to the children and parents it serves, and to the local community
