Governors

This page explains the role of the school governors. Schools in England, Wales and Northern Ireland have governing bodies made up of staff, parents, local authority, the community and foundation (the Diocese).

The governing body has an elected chair-person and vice-chair but it is the role of the chair-person to ensure all governors understand their collective responsibility for any decisions, to ensure meetings are run and minuted correctly and decisions taken as necessary. The chair works closely with the headteacher where issues and concerns are discussed and to decide, for example, what needs to be referred to the governing body.
