Together with the headteacher they are responsible for making sure our school provides good quality education.

  • They provide challenge and support to the Headteacher, drawing on their knowledge and experience.
  • They make decisions together on matters such as performance, targets, school policies and school development plans.
  • They monitor the impact of policies and oversee school budgets and staffing.
  • They report school's achievements and respond to inspection recommendations.
  • They hear appeals from pupils and staff and consider complaints.
  • They ask searching questions and respect the position of Headteachers as professional leaders of schools. 

Some websites call it 'strategic oversight', but basically we are a group of parents, community members and staff who ensure that important decisions are made in the best interests of the school, staff and (most importantly) children. 

To be a governor requires no special qualifications and we are supported with experience and training by North Somerset Council. All you need is a passion and commitment to help the school continuously improve.
