The role of the school governor and governing bodies

The role of the school governor is demanding but very rewarding and is a good way to give back to your local community. School governing bodies are responsible for working with the school to ensure that it delivers a good quality education. Together with the headteacher, who is responsible for day-to-day management, they help to set the school’s aims and policies.

Who can be a school governor?

You do not have to have children at the school to be a governor. However, you do have to be over 18, and pass a formal check for your suitability to be within a school. No specific qualifications are required but there are certain expectations. What’s really important is that you have energy, enthusiasm, time and a real desire to help provide children with the best possible education. Governors come from all sections of the community, and all walks of life. They can be parents, staff at the school, residents in the locality or representatives of local churches or businesses. It is important that you can work as part of a team, and can give commitment to the school. There are usually, depending on the size of the school, between 9 – 20 people who make up the governing body. Advice, support and training for the role is given by the council. Some governors are elected by parents, some are appointed by the governing body itself, the local authority or local churches. This ensures governing bodies reflect the communities they serve.
