Governors

Governor Roles and Responsibilities

Governors are the strategic leaders within schools and have the responsibility of promoting high standards of educational achievement, ensuring every child in their school receives the best quality education. ​The DfE Governance Handbook states the governing body has three ​core functions;

 

  • Ensuring clarity of vision, ethos and strategic direction;
  • Holding executive leaders to account for the educational performance of the organisation and its pupils and the performance management of staff; and
  • Overseeing the financial performance of the organisation and making sure its money is well spent.

 

Governors are appointed by different groups.  A Foundation Governor can be appointed by the local church (through the Parochial Church Council ‘the PCC’), the Diocesan Board of Education and in some Church schools directly by the Diocesan Bishop or their representative. 

 

Foundation Governors have the additional responsibility to secure the character of the school as a Church of England voluntary school, that it is preserved and developed in accordance with the school’s trust deed and its ethos statement. 

 

The Full Governing Body meets twice a term, and delegates some of its responsibilities to three committees:

  • PPP (Personnel, Pay and Pastoral)
  • RS&C (Raising Standards & Curriculum)
  • Resources

Impact Statements

Ofsted Monitoring Inspection Visit, June 2021:

'Leaders and those responsible for governance are taking effective action in order for the school to become a good school'.

 

Ofsted Remote Monitoring Inspection Visit, March 2021:
Governors are well informed about recent improvements in curriculum developments and about current adaptations for remote learning. They are rightly proud of the growing sense of community in the school that has resulted from leaders’ actions during the pandemic. Governors have made excellent use of the virtual additional training opportunities available to them during this time, increasing their knowledge and skill set. As a result, they are confident in being able to support and challenge leaders regarding the improvements that still need to be made in the school'.
