Our Governors

What They Do

Governors are appointed or elected by a number of bodies and groups including the Church, the local authority, the parents and the staff. Governors are representatives not delegates.

A brief explanation of the role of Governors is that they set the strategic direction and the policies of a school or college. They are accountable for the quality of education provided and the spending of public funding. They monitor to see that plans and policies are implemented.

It is not only the education of the children that the Governors have a responsibility for, various statutes have laid down legal responsibilities on governors and these fall under a number of general headings, including:

  • Standards
  • Equality
  • Finance
  • Staffing
  • Curriculum
  • Behaviour management
  • Admissions
