Governors

This information gives an overview of an academy governor’s responsibilities.

Governors have a strong focus on three core strategic functions:

  • Ensuring clarity of vision, ethos and strategic direction;
  • Holding the Principal to account for the educational performance of the school and its pupils, and the performance management of staff; and
  • Overseeing the financial performance of the school and making sure its money is well spent

Governors are appointed to provide:

  • strong links between the academy and the community we serve
  • a wide experience of the outside world
  • an independent view
  • a focus on long term development and improvement
  • accountability to the community for the use of resources and the standards of teaching and learning within the academy
  • support for the Principal and staff

Governors are expected to:

  • attend meetings of the governing body
  • work as a member of the governing body (not as an individual) in the best interests of the academy
  • show an interest in academy activities
  • become well-informed about education in general and about our academy in particular
  • become familiar with the rules of academy governance
  • keep up to date with changes in education legislation
  • attend training courses, where appropriate

Governors are involved in the following activities:

  • senior staff appointments
