What does it mean to be a School Governor?

Briefly the role involves being part of a friendly efficient team who actively support and challenge the school, working alongside the Head Teacher as a critical friend. Much of the work of the Governing Body goes unseen, but they play a key role in helping the school provide the best education for its pupils.

The Governing Body plays an active role in the strategic development of the school. Typically a Governor will attend two meetings per term, the full Governing Body meeting on one evening and the meetings of the sub committees on another. Each Governor is also responsible for monitoring and evaluating the curriculum. As a link Governor, they will link to a particular class and will meet the class teacher with a view to promoting high standards of educational achievement, including target setting, managing curriculum budgets, reporting results and performance, performance management, health and safety inspections and policy. 

The Full Governing Body meeting deals with the big issues that face the school and is often the final consideration of a new initiative before its implementation. Two committees carry out most of the work of the Governing body. The Finance and General Purposes Committee and the Strategic Development, Pupils & Personnel Committee, which deals with a huge variety of issues covering curriculum, pupils and staff policies.
