The role of school governors is often cited as being three fold:
To help in the strategic planning of the school
This means helping with the decision making process, approving the annual School Development Plan and allied budget plan, setting policies and appointing the Head Teacher.
To secure accountability
This involves reporting on performance against the targets set, hearing appeals, dealing with general complaints, conducting the Head's appraisal and setting the Head's salary range.
To act as a critical friend
This involves supporting, monitoring, evaluating and challenging the running of the school.
The whole governing body meet at least once every term. It is split into different committees (School Improvement and Finance/Resources) and these committees also meet at least once each term.
