Do you care about education and want to contribute to the local community? 

Governors have an important role in supporting head teachers to ensure pupils receive the best possible education.  Governors can become involved in a range of school matters, which can include recruitment, finance, safeguarding and curriculum. They also provide a strong link between the school and the local community, and an independent view to support the school on long term development and improvement.

Governors are required to:

* manage the school budget, consider the annual budget plan, approve the budget, consider and approve any proposed revisions to the budget plan.

* decide on how to spend delegated budget depending on any conditions set out in the LA scheme within the financial year.

* decide whether to delegate their powers to spend the delegated budget to the Head Teacher if so, they should establish the financial limits of delegated authority

* make sure accurate accounts are kept.

* determine the staff pay policy for the school (in accordance with School Teachers Pay and Conditions).

* support the Head Teacher 

* establish a written performance management policy to govern staff appraisal, after making sure that all staff have been consulted.


What skills do I need?

Enthusiasm in supporting education in the local community is a must and we encourage volunteers from a diverse range of backgrounds. All skills, qualifications, and experiences are considered to ensure that the governing board is a true reflection of the community served. We are looking for anyone interested in ensuring the school provides the best education possible for the pupils at the school.

Experience of management, HR, data analysis, safeguarding, buildings, finance, IT or other skills acquired from business or industry, or just from managing a home and family would be beneficial.

There are excellent training opportunities available.
