The Role of Governors

The school’s governing board comprises of the Headteacher, teaching and non-teaching staff, parents, Local Education Authority representatives and community nominees

Governors have the following main responsibilities:

  • To determine the long term strategic future of the school;
  • To decide how the school budget should be spent and securing best value in the use of public funds;
  • To appoint the Headteacher of the school and to hold the post holder and staff to account for
    • school outcomes and the attainment and achievement of pupils,
    • organisation of the curriculum,
    • performance management of staff;
  • To decide policy on such things as equal opportunities, discipline, sex education, special needs provision, salaries.

The governing board has sub committees e.g. curriculum, finance, staffing, premises and health and safety, that do much of the detailed work and advise the governing body when it comes to policies and decision making. 

The Governors hold full meetings at least three times a year.
