Governors

In England, Wales and Northern Ireland, every state school has a governing body, consisting of specified numbers of various categories of governors depending on the type and size of school. Governors are unpaid.

 

A governing body helps the school to provide the best possible education by:

  • setting the school's values, vision and strategic aims, agreeing plans and policies and making creative use of resources
  • monitoring and evaluating performance, acting as a critical friend to the Headteacher to support and challenge them in managing the school, and ensuring that the school is accountable to the children and parents its serves, to its local community, to those who fund and maintain it, as well as to the staff it employs.

 

Individual governors also take on specific roles within the Governing Body, for example, taking an overview of Special Education Needs, a specific curriculum subject, Safeguarding of Children, or a finance role. Governors also hear appeals arising from complaints to the school, or various disciplinary matters.
