Governor Role

WHAT IS THE ROLE OF GOVERNORS?

Governors are appointed to help:

  • Set the aims, policies and strategic direction of the school

  • Ensure implementation of the curriculum

  • Set and monitor targets for achievement

  • Set standards of behaviour

  • Interview and select staff

  • Decide how the school budget is spent

School Governors have legal duties, powers and responsibilities. The can only act together, they cannot act individually.

PARENT GOVERNORS

  1. Have a child at the school at the time of election

  2. Are elected by parents of the school

  3. Serve, as do other Governors, for four years.

Parent governors are representatives and not delegates of the parents and their role is to present a ‘parental viewpoint’ and therefore they speak and act as individuals.
