The role of the school governor is demanding but very rewarding and is a good way to give back to your local community. School governing bodies are responsible for working with the school to ensure that it delivers a good quality education. Together with the headteacher, who is responsible for day-to-day management, they set the school’s aims and policies.

The key roles of governors are:
1. To ensure clarity of vision, ethos and strategic direction
2. To hold the headteacher to account for the educational performance of the school and its pupils, and the performance management of staff
3. To oversee the financial performance of the school and make sure its money is well spent
