Governors’ Information

The governing body is made up of parent, staff, local authority and community representatives. The governors’ role is not about fundraising, neither it is about cheerleading for the school – though governors might do both those things. School governors provide strategic leadership and accountability in schools. Governors appoint the head teacher and are involved in the appointment of other staff. It is governors who hold the main responsibility for finance in schools, and it is governors who work with the head teacher to make the tough decisions about balancing resources.

Each individual governor is a member of a governing body, which is established in law as a corporate body.   Individual governors may not act independently of the rest of the governing body. Decisions are the joint responsibility of the governing body.  Follow this link to see a list of Governor business interests. The role of the governing body is a strategic one, its key functions are to:

  • set the aims and objectives for the school

  • set the policies for achieving those aims and objectives

  • set the targets for achieving those aims and objectives

  • monitor and evaluate the progress the school is making towards achievement of its aims and objectives

  • be a source of challenge and support to the head teacher (a critical friend)

 If you would like to become a Governor please contact the Mrs Melanie Wilkinson our school administrator who is clerk to the governing body.
