Governors have three main roles:

The Strategic Role
  • Having a vision for the school
  • Developing aims for the school
  • Forward planning so that all pupils can achieve the very best they can
The 'Critical Friend' Role
  • Monitoring and evaluating the school's work
  • Visiting the school
  • Ensuring that all meetings are effective by preparing questions and being well read on information given prior to meetings
The Accountability Role
  • Reporting on progress
  • Reciprocal accountability between school leaders and governors
  • The accountability to parents and the community they serve

School Governors make important collective decisions and are answerable to the parents and the community.
