What does a school governor do?
Governors are responsible for overseeing the management side of
a school: strategy, policy, budgeting and staffing. They enable their
school to run as effectively as possible, working alongside senior leaders
and supporting teachers to provide excellent education to children.
Being a school governor is a commitment to attending governing body
meetings which consider issues such as setting the school vision,
mitigating financial risk and scrutinising educational outcomes. They are
also involved in the school community, acting as critical friends to the
headteacher and senior leaders.
Governors bring a wide range of skills and expertise from their
professional lives to the governing board and schools benefit greatly
from working with skilled volunteers, for example anyone with experience
of finance, law, premises management or human resources. A governor
with business know-how can transform the running of a school.
