Governors have a very important overseeing role in a school. They are there to support, challenge and be accountable for all aspects of the school. This is referred to as governance.

  • Ensure that the school has a clarity of vision, ethos and strategic direction.
  • Contribute to the school self-evaluation.
  • Support the school’s leadership.
  • Hold the school leaders accountable for the teaching and learning in the school, pupils achievement and safety.
  • Make sure that all statutory duties are met.
  • Engage with stakeholders – parents and pupils, local authority.
  • Use the Pupil Premium and other resources to aid the learning of the pupils.
  •
