Become A Governor

Responsibilities of The Governing Body

Our governing body has a strategic role in the development of the school but does not become involved in day-to-day management issues – that is the role of the headteacher. Key responsibilities of the governing body can be summarised as:


  • § Setting and monitoring the school's aims and policies
  • § Setting targets, staff performance targets and whole school targets
  • § Review and monitor examination/national test results
  • § Monitor attendance of pupils/staff/governors
  • § Reviewing, adopting and monitoring the School Improvement Plan
  • § Reviewing, adopting and monitoring the SEF
  • § Determining how the school's budget is spent
  • § Hearing escalated appeals and grievances
  • § Setting standards for pupils' behaviour and discipline in consultation with the Headteacher
  • § Working in partnership with the senior leadership team and caretaker making sure school buildings are welcoming and safe
