Governors play a key role in leading, supporting and improving schools.

What school governors do

Governors sit on the school’s governing board and work with the headteacher. They’re responsible for the strategic goals, while the headteacher implements them and manages the school from day to day. The governors:

  • set the overall vision and direction of the school
  • oversee the budget
  • help recruit staff
  • monitor the performance of the school, for example in examinations and key stage tests
  • advise on school policies and procedures

You can find out more about governors' responsibilities in the DFE Governance Handbook.

Governor’s duties include:

  • taking part in regular governors’ meetings, usually six times a year with extra committee meetings
  • spend some time on training and getting to know the school
  • occasionally sit on appointments panels or panels that handle staff or pupil discipline issues or complaints against the school
