What Are School Governors
School Governors are teams of volunteers who work closely with their school’s senior leaders to make key decisions vital to the successful running of the school. Governors have an important part to play in maintaining and raising school standards. Governors have three key roles:
• Setting strategic direction
• Ensuring accountability
• Monitoring and evaluating the school's performance.
An important part of this is appointing, managing and working with the Head Teacher, supporting him and holding him accountable for the performance of the school within the budgets agreed by the Governors.
