School governors have a varied and important role, in helping our school run effectively. They have 3 core functions:
- Planning the strategic direction of the school
- Overseeing financial performance of the school and ensuring money is well spent
- Holding the headteacher or school leadership to account
The governor role is strategic rather than operational. Governors don’t get involved with the day to day running of a school, instead supporting and challenging the school’s leadership team to drive school improvement. They champion the work the school does.
If this sounds like something that you would be interested in doing or just finding out some more information, please contact either the clerk to the governors, Andrew Thomas at firstname.lastname@example.org or contact the school directly by emailing email@example.com
