Governors

What does a governor do?

The three main responsibilities of every governing board are:
 
  1. Setting the school’s vision, ethos and strategic direction
  2. Holding the headteacher to account for the educational performance of the school and its pupils
  3. Overseeing the financial performance of the school and making sure its money is well spent

The role of a governor is to contribute to the work of the governing body in ensuring high standards of achievement for all children and young people in the school.
