School governors work with the Headteacher to make decisions about how the school is run. They have legal duties, powers and responsibilities.

School governors are appointed to:

  • monitor the work of the school and the standards attained
  • approve what is taught in school
  • set standards of behaviour
  • interview and select staff
  • agree and monitor the school budget
  • ratify policies

Governors work together: they cannot act individually.

School governors are:

  • parents
  • school staff
  • local council representatives
  • community representatives, business people etc

Parent governors:

  • have a child in school
  • are elected by parents of children in school
  • serve, as do other governors, for four years

The Governing Body and its committees meet at least twice a term. The minutes of the meetings are available in school. If you are interested in becoming a governor, please ask the Headteacher for further details.
