The Role of the Governors

The governors’ work affects most aspects of the school’s work. They establish, with the Headteacher, aims for the school, and approve policies – for the curriculum, behaviour and discipline, for example; and are responsible for the school’s budget, the appointment of staff and the use and maintenance of the premises.

More generally, they are expected to be in touch with the local community and to help guide the school to meet the community’s educational needs. They are also expected to help the school explain to the community what the school is trying to achieve for their children. The Governors, together as a body, have a range of legal responsibilities. 

All governors are equally responsible and discharge their responsibilities as a body, not individually. The Parent Governors speak as parents: they can’t speak for all parents – and the Governing Body as a whole reports to all the parents each year.


The Governing Body regularly visit the school and their visits include:

Health & Safety (Classroom/Site) Inspections

Sports Fixtures

Open Afternoons - Where Governors are free to walk into lessons.

Chair of Governors meets fortnightly with the Headteacher.
