How to become a governor
The role of a governor is interesting and challenging but at the same time rewarding. If you are over 18 years of age you can become a governor. An enhanced DBS check will be made to ensure your suitability to be a governor. Governing Bodies are made up of a group of volunteers - staff, parents and local people whose main aim is to work as a team to ensure the wellbeing of all children and to ensure they achieve to the the best of their ability.
A governing body has the following three core functions:
- Ensuring clarity of vision, ethos and strategic direction.
- Holding the executive leaders to account for the education performance of the organisation and its pupils and the performance management of staff.
- Overseeing the financial performance of the organisation and making sure its money is well spent.
