School Governor 

The role of a school governor is to contribute to the governing board in ensuring high standards of achievement for all children and young people in the school.  The ideal candidate needs to have an understanding of SEND, and highlight the need for inclusion, equality and diversity, supporting our ethos that every student should be supported to fulfil their full potential.  

We are looking for a school governor who has experience in education, preferably someone who holds a teaching qualification.  School governors support the school by:

  • suppoting the school to meet enforce and meet its vision, ethos and strategic direction
  • holding the headteacher and Senior Leadership Team to account for the educational performance of the school and its pupils
  • overseeing the financial performance of the school and making sure its value for money

The role of the school governor can be demanding, but very rewarding. Under usual circumstances, you should expect to spend between 10 days a year on your governing responsibilities; the top end of this commitment equates to about one day per month in term time. Activities include:

  • Undertaking training in the role. 
  • Attending meetings of the governing body of your school, usually outside of school hours.
  • Reading reports and papers and keeping up to date on the progress that the school is making.
  • Ensuring that the school is prepared for Ofsted
  • Visiting the school from time to time.

All governors must have:

  • a strong commitment to the role and to improving outcomes for children
  • the inquisitiveness to question and analyse;
  • the willingness to learn;
  • good inter-personal skills;
  • ability to provide constructive feedback
