What are school governors?
They are the strategic leaders of our school and have a vital role to play in making sure every child gets the best possible education. For maintained schools this is reflected in the law, which states that the purpose of maintained school governing bodies is to conduct the school with a view to promoting high standards of educational achievement at the school.
In all types of schools, governing bodies should have a strong focus on three core
a. Ensuring clarity of vision, ethos and strategic direction;
b. Holding the headteacher to account for the educational performance of the
school and its pupils; and
c. Overseeing the financial performance of the school and making sure its
money is well spent.
