Effective governance is based on six key features:

Strategic leadership that sets and champions vision, ethos and strategy.

Accountability that drives up educational standards and financial performance.

People with the right skills, experience, qualities and capacity.

Structures that reinforce clearly defined roles and responsibilities.

Compliance with statutory and contractual requirements.

Evaluation to monitor and improve the quality and impact of governance.

School governors are responsible for making decisions about how the school is run. They meet at least once a term at school. They have legal duties, powers and responsibilities.

School governors are:

  • Parents
  • Staff at the school
  • Community representatives (business people) called co-opted

Parent Governors bring the views of parents to the governing body, but they speak as individuals. They have equal status in the work of the governing body with voting rights.
