Governors

Many different groups are involved in the life of a school: pupils, parents, staff and governors.  Each group has an important role to play in a school’s success.  This is a simple explanation of the role of governors.

Who?

The Governing Body (GB) of Northbury Primary School consists of parents, staff, community and local authority representatives.  They are all volunteers and receive training for their very important role.

What do they do?

  • Provide strategic leadership alongside the Headteacher
  • Act as a critical friend by monitoring and evaluating, supporting and challenging the school to do better
  • Hold the school to account for the standards it provides and the quality of education at the school

How do they do this?

The governors fulfil these duties by:

  • visiting the school on a regular basis;
  • attending the three main GB meetings that take place once per term;
  • joining a committee that looks more closely at matters of finance or policies;
  • asking questions and considering documents prepared by the school;
  • challenging the Headteacher in a constructive way;
  • developing and supporting the values of the school.

How can you meet them?

All governors can be contacted via the school office.
