School governors have responsibility for raising school standards through their 3 key roles of:
  • setting strategic direction
  • ensuring accountability
  • acting as a 'critical friend'
The headteacher is responsible for the day-to-day management of the school. The role of the Governing Body is to provide strategic management, supporting the work of the headteacher. They are a vital part of the leadership of the school.

The Governing Body is responsible for managing the budget, appointing staff, monitoring progress, setting targets and deciding admissions.

The Governing Body meets at least 3 times a year as a full Governing Body. However, much of the work of governors is done at committee level. 

Governors are appointed with a term of office of 4 years
