School Governor Volunteer

School governors are volunteers.  They have 3 core functions:

  • ensuring clarity of vision, ethos and strategic direction
  • holding executive leaders to account for educational performance of the organisation, pupils, and staff
  • overseeing financial performance and making sure money is well spent

In practice this involves attending meetings of the  governing body and its committees, asking questions and visiting the school. You may get involved in:

  • headteacher performance management and recruitment
  • analysis of performance data
  • approval of policies
  • admissions (not all schools)
  • school improvement matters such as the quality of teaching and raising attainment
  • ensuring that the needs of children with Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND) are met
