To be effective, Governors need to understand how the school works and how regulation and policy impact the school and the educational progress being made by pupils. In particular Governors are expected to:

  • Attend the formal Full Governing Body meetings (minimum of 3 per year) and strategy days (1-2 per days per year).

  • Be a member of either the Resources Committee or the School Improvement Committee (usually 1 meeting each per term).

  • Undertake a range of training courses relevant to their role in the Governing Body

  • Become a link to a particular class or educational subject area depending on the changing priorities of the School and the Governing Body.

  • Become a specialist Governor link for a particular area of school activity such as pupil educational data, curriculum implementation, finance, well-being, health and safety and safeguarding.
