The Governing Body

The school governors are responsible for the governance of our school.  Volunteering as a school governor is a challenging but rewarding role that offers the  opportunity to make a difference for children and young people in your community.

Elements of the role include:

  • Developing a vision and strategy for the school
  • Overseeing the financial performance of the school and making sure its money is well spent
  • Holding the school leader to account to ensure that every pupil has the best possible education
  • Engaging with pupils, staff, parents and the school community to understand their views of the school

To fulfil the role, you will need to:

  • Attend regular meetings (around 6 each year)
  • Visit the school occasionally
  • Do some background reading
  • Take part in induction training and ongoing development

Who can be a school governor?

  • Anyone over 18 can be a school governor. Every governing body includes parent governors, and it can be a rewarding way to be involved in your child’s school.
  • The most important qualities for being a governor are enthusiasm, commitment and an interest in education. You don’t need teaching experience, but it’s useful to bring skills from other areas of your life.

If you are interested in becoming a Governor at our school, please contact the school office on 01484 226672 to request further information.
