With the exception of the head teacher all governors serve a four-year term before they must stand for re-election.

 

Who are we responsible to?

School governors are responsible to and must be prepared to explain their actions to anyone with a valid interest in the school. This includes parents, staff, pupils, the LEA Manchester Diocese, Dfes and the local community.

 

What do we do?

Being a governor of a Church School is a vital Christian ministry. It involves time, energy and a willingness to become involved in the life of the school on a regular basis. It requires the prayerful and practical support of the local Church. The governing body has a strategic role and must not be confused with the role of the headteacher. It develops policy in consultation with the staff of the school, approves these policies and monitors their implementation. The headteacher, aided by any leadership team, is responsible for the implementation of these policies and the day-to-day management of the school. The Education and Inspections Act 2006 gives the governing body the additional duties to promote the well-being of pupils at the school, promote community cohesion and have regard to any relevant children and young people's plan.

A 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 including setting targets for pupil achievement, managing the school’s finances, making sure the curriculum is balanced and broadly based, appointing staff and reviewing staff performance and pay and many more.
