Role of the Governing Body

The governors are a group of individuals, made up of parents, staff, members of the community and the Local Authority.

Proportions of governors are of at least one quarter of parents, two members of staff including the headteacher. In addition, the Governing Body comprises of co-opted governors, local authority governors and foundation governors. Governors serve for four years, and will have a variety of responsibilities during this time.

Governors are volunteers from all walks of life. An effective governing body will have people from different backgrounds with mixed skills. Governors are not education experts - they are there to bring a fresh perspective.

The role of the governing body is a strategic one. Its key functions are to:

  • Set aims and objectives for the school.
  • Set the policies for achieving those aims and objectives.
  • Set targets for achieving those aims and objectives.
  • Monitor and evaluate the progress the school is making towards achievement of its aims and objectives.
  • Be a source of challenge and support to the headteacher.

Governors are required to declare any potential business interests that may lead to a conflict of interest and this may be found here:
