Governor Overview

What is the Governing Body?

There are various types of governors drawn from different areas of the community including, parents, staff, LEA, community and other groups. Governors are volunteers who spend several hours each month attending meetings and working to further the school’s development.

As a new governor it is important that you have all the information you need to do the role properly. We have a New Governors Pack that helps with this.

How do Governors help children?
School governors are people who wish to make a positive contribution to children’s education. Together with the head teacher they set the future direction of the school and decide how the school’s budget should be spent. Governing bodies  make decisions collectively on matters such as school policies and the school’s  development plan and act as a "critical
friend" to the school.

What binds all of us, regardless of our Governor status or category is the key question "What is the best thing for the school and the children who attend it both now and in the future?" If you would like to meet the Chair of Governors, or any other Governor, for whatever reason, please contact us.
