What do the Governors do at
The governors act as a "critical friend" to the school, monitoring and overseeing the smooth running of the school and supporting and
listening to staff and parents. The Local Governing Board is responsible for the overall management of the school and for determining
its aims, objectives and policies in accordance with all the relevant legislation. The head manages the school from day to day and is
the Local Governing Board’s principal professional adviser who assists it with the formulation and implementation of its aims, objectives,
policies and plans.
School governors help schools provide the best possible education for their pupils:
