Governing bodies are accountable for the strategic direction of their school and for the quality of education provided.

Many kinds of people can become governors of schools. They will have a particular reason for serving on the governing body. Because of these different reasons all governing bodies have a core group of governors, consisting of:

  • Parent governors
  • Teacher governors
  • Staff governors
  • Local Authority governors
  • Community governors
  • The headteacher (acting in the capacity of a governor where this is his/her choice)
  • Associate Governors (limited voting rights)

A Governor is a volunteer who:

  • has an interest in education;
  • represents those with a key interest in the school;
  • is part of a team which accepts responsibility for everything a school does;
  • has time to commit to meetings and other occasions;
  • is willing to learn;
  • is able to act as a critical friend who supports the school but also challenges and asks questions about how the school works and the standards it achieves;
  • acts as a link between parents, the local community, the Local Authority and the school.
