What do governors do?

 

Governors have several key roles:

  • to ensure clarity of vision, ethos and strategic direction
  • to hold the headteacher to account for the educational performance of the school and its pupils, and the performance management of staff
  • to oversee the financial performance of the school and make sure its money is well spent. 

They also carry out a number of other important duties, which include:

  • determining how the school's budget is spent;
  • the appointing and dismissing of staff;
  • hearing appeals and grievances;
  • forming policy on the school's curriculum and collective worship;
  • setting standards for pupils' behaviour and discipline;
  • making sure school buildings are welcoming and safe;
  • setting and monitoring the school's aims and policies.
