Governors

What do they do?

Governors are like a Board of Directors who meets at least once a term to make decisions
about how the school is run.
Governors are appointed to help:-
  • Decide how the school budget is spent
  • Interview and select staff
  • Decide what is taught (e.g. whether sex education is included in the curriculum)
  • Set standards of behaviour
Governors are part of a team that cares about the well being of the school and its
community.
