Governors are volunteers who work in partnership with school
headteachers to ensure that children receive the best education
possible. Governors represent the largest volunteer group in the UK
and are selected from a variety of backgrounds to reflect the many
interest groups within our schools.

The governing body has a range of duties and powers, and a
general responsibility for the conduct of the school with a view to
promoting high standards of educational achievement. This
includes setting targets for pupil achievement, managing the
school's finances, making sure the curriculum is balanced,
appointing senior staff, reviewing staff performance and pay and
deciding how, in strategic terms, the school should be run.
