Governors

The role of the school governor and governing bodies

The role of the school governor is demanding but very rewarding and is a good way to give back to your local community. School governing bodies are responsible for working with the school to ensure that it delivers a good quality education. Together with the headteacher, who is responsible for day-to-day management, they set the school's aims and policies.

Governors have three main roles:

•To provide strategic direction for the school
•To act as a critical friend to the headteacher
•To ensure accountability

They also carry out a number of other important duties, which include:

•Determining how the school's budget is spent
•The appointing and dismissing of staff
•Hearing appeals and grievances
•Forming policy on the school's curriculum and collective worship
•Setting standards for pupils' behaviour and discipline
•Making sure school buildings are welcoming and safe
•Setting and monitoring the school's aims and policies

Complaints Procedure
If you wish to make a complaint about the school your first step should be to contact the classteacher or the Headteacher. Details of our complaints procedure and how Governors become involved can be found below.

Please be aware that contacting Governors directly can compromise the procedure.
