The role of governors


The role of a school governor is to contribute to the work of the governing body in raising standards of achievement for all pupils. This involves:

  • ensuring there is a clarity of vision, ethos and strategic direction for the school
  • holding senior leaders to account for the educational performance of all pupils, and the effective and efficient performance management of staff
  • overseeing the financial performance of the organisation and making sure its money is well spent


Governors have a responsibility to the staff and pupils of the school and the school’s wider community.


They must have an interest in our children’s future, be willing to contribute and make a difference, and respect the need for confidentiality. Governors must act with integrity, objectivity and honesty and in the best interests of the school.
