The Role of School Governors
School Governors are members of the local community and include parents and carers of children studying in the school, who work together with the Headteacher and his staff to ensure that together we achieve the common aim of providing the best possible education for all students. We are all unpaid volunteers who work together as a governing body in undertaking three main areas of responsibility:
More detail about our work this year can be found by clicking on our Terms of Reference and our Visit Schedule for this year. We are not inspectors, however, nor do we provide an alternative channel in to the school to discuss issues relating to individual students, which should always be followed up through the normal school procedures involving contacting the teacher or SENCO in the first instance.
Being a school governor is an interesting and rewarding role. There are various categories of governor – parent governors, community governors, staff governors – and you can find out more about each type and about becoming a governor by following this link to a page on the National Governor Association website: http://www.nga.org.uk/Can-we-help/Be-a-Governor.aspx. If you are interested in becoming a governor at Farrington Gurney Church of England Primary School, please get in touch with me via the school email (email@example.com), marked for the attention of ‘Chair of Governors’, and I will be happy to answer any questions you may have. Any vacancies we have will be listed under the governors tab.
