What is the role of a Governor?

Governors are the strategic leaders of our schools and have a vital role to play in making sure every child gets the best possible education.

In all types of schools, governing bodies should have a strong focus on three core strategic functions:

Ensuring clarity of vision, ethos and strategic direction

Holding the headteacher to account for the educational performance of the school and its pupils, and the performance management of staff

Overseeing the financial performance of the school and making sure its money is well spent

This amounts to a demanding role for governing bodies. Evidence suggests that those that deliver it well do so by:

Governing bodies may decide to task individual governors to take an interest in a specific areas, such as SEN, safeguarding or health and safety, but there is no legal requirement for either maintained schools or academies to do so. There are many different models and governing bodies are best placed to decide for themselves what will work best in their own circumstances. It is the overall governing body, however, that in all cases remains accountable in law and to Ofsted for the exercise of its functions.

This is taken from the Governor’s handbook from the Department for Education.
