What do School Governors do?

Governors are like a Board of Directors and they make decisions about how the school is run. They meet at least once a term at school. They are appointed to help:-

  1. Decide what is taught.
  2. Set standards of behaviour.
  3. Interview and appoint staff.
  4. Decide how the school budget is spent.


School Governors are:

  1. Parents.
  2. Teachers at the school.
  3. Local council representatives.
  4. Community representatives, businessmen and women.

The minutes of each Governor’s meeting are kept in school and are available to interested parents.
