School governors

 

What does the governing body do?  

 

Recent legislation has widened the responsibilities of school governors, but broadly governing bodies oversee the work of the school and make sure it provides a good quality education for its pupils.  Working in partnership with the head and other staff, governors are involved in: 

  • setting up a strategic framework for the school
  • setting its aims and objectives  
  • reviewing progress and reviewing the strategic framework in the light of progress  
  • setting policies
  • improving standards of teaching and achievement
  • setting the school's budget plan and monitoring expenditure  
  • interviewing and appointing teachers and support staff
  • appraising the headteacher and ensuring staff are meeting the appropriate teacher standards
  • acting as a link between the local community and the school
  • dealing with complaints about the school
  • drawing up an action plan after an inspection, and monitoring the success of the plan.    

The governing body is a “critical friend” to the head teacher and provides advice and support. 

 

The head teacher is responsible for the internal organisation, management and control of the school; and for advising on and implementing the governing body’s strategic framework.

 

In particular, head teachers:

  • formulate aims and objectives, policies and targets for the governing body to consider adopting
  • report to the governing body on progress at least once every school year.  

 

The governing body is responsible for establishing a performance management policy for effective school teacher appraisal.  

 

The governing body is responsible for performing the head teacher’s appraisal together with an education professional.
