Role of a Governor
The governing body is responsible for ensuring the school improves each year. It sets the direction of the school whilst allowing the head teacher and teaching professionals to manage the school on a day to day basis.
Governors attend meetings where reports about the school's progress are discussed. They ask challenging questions and ensure the school spends its budget wisely against the priorities in the school development and improvement plan.
- Work within a structure that gives every governor a role in the governance team
- Learn how the school evaluates its own strengths and weaknesses
- Understand how the weaknesses or areas for development become targets in the annual school plan
- Share decision making to ensure that the school budget supports the delivery of the targets in the school plan
- Receive reports, make focused visits to the school, study results, and participate in other activities to enable them to understand the strengths and weaknesses of the school
- Support the school, act as representatives of the school and provide a link between the school and the community.
