What are Governors?
Governors work with the headteacher and senior leadership team in the strategic development of the school and in raising standards of achievement.
Duties include setting the school’s vision, aims & objectives, approving the school budget and appointing the headteacher.
They must be able to support and challenge the headteacher, so need to gain an understanding of the school’s overall performance in order to explain its decisions and actions. Governing bodies work as a team and make collective decisions.
