The Role of the School Governor
Alongside the Head Teacher, governors are the strategic leaders of a school and have a vital role to play in making sure every child gets the best possible education. For maintained schools this is reflected in the law, which states that the purpose of maintained school governing bodies is to ‘conduct the school with a view to promoting high standards of educational achievement at the school’. In all types of schools, governing bodies should have a strong focus on three core strategic functions:
1.Ensuring clarity of vision, ethos and strategic direction;
2.Holding the headteacher to account for the educational performance of the school and its pupils;
3.Overseeing the financial performance of the school and making sure its money is well spent.
