Governing Board

Governors are one of the largest volunteer forces in the country and have an important part to play in raising school standards. The role of the governing board is key to the effectiveness of a school. School governors provide strategic leadership and accountability in schools.

The role of the governing board is a strategic one; its key functions are to:

  • set the aims and objectives for the school
  • set the policies for achieving those aims and objectives
  • set the targets for achieving those aims and objectives
  • monitor and evaluate the progress the school is making towards achievement of its aims and objectives
  • be a source of challenge and support to the headteacher (a critical friend)
