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:

  • Parents
  • 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.
