Role of the School Governor

The role of the school governor is very important. Every school in Kirklees has between nine and twenty governors making up their governing body, depending upon the size of the school. The governing body is made up of elected members, representing different areas, such as the local community, the local education authority, school staff and parents. Together with the headteacher, the governors are responsible for making sure a school provides good quality education for all its pupils. This is done by:

 

  • Providing challenge and support for the headteacher
  • Making decisions on matters such as staff performance and salaries, targets, school policies and school development plans
  • Monitoring the impact of policies
  • Overseeing the school budget and staffing
  • Reporting on the school’s achievements and responding to inspection recommendations
  • Hearing appeals to consider complaints
  • Helping to plan the school’s future direction
