Introduction and Overview
What do governors do?
Governors are like a Board of Directors and make decisions about how the School is run. They meet at least once a term in School.
Who Are School Governors?
School Governors have legal duties and responsibilities. They can only act together, they cannot act individually. They are either:
- Teachers or Support Staff at the School
- Local Council Representatives
- Diocesan Representatives (Foundation Governors)
Key Roles and Responsibilities
- Decide what is taught
- Set standards of behaviour
- Interview and select staff
- Decide how the School Budget is spent
The Sub Committees
Much of the work however is carried out in sub committees. More details about the Sub-Committees and the roles of the Governors can be found in the governance drop down.
