What is a Governor?

A Governor is a volunteer who cares about teaching, learning and children.  They represent the people with a key interest in the school, including parents, staff, the local community and the local authority.

Governors are:

  • part of a very important team.
  • support the Head-Teacher.
  • accept responsibility for what the school does.
  • attend meetings on a regular basis.
  • attend school events.
  • a link between parents, the local community and local authority.
  • acts as a critical friend who supports the school but also challenges and asks
    questions about how the school works and the standards it achieves.
