School Governors make strategic decisions about how the school operates. They meet at least once a term and all parents are welcome to come along and listen to what goes on. School Governors work in partnership with the Headteacher and the Council and share responsibility for the quality and equality of the curriculum on offer. Governors also provide essential links between the school, parents, the local community and the Local Education Authority.
School Governors have legal duties, powers and responsibilities. They can only act together, they can not act individually. The School Governors are made up of :
2. Staff and the Headteacher
3. Local council representatives
4. Local community representatives
Parent Governors have at least one child in the school, are elected by parents of the school and serve, as do other governors, for four years, even if their child leaves the school. Parents can ask Parent Governors to bring the views of parents to the Governing Body, but they speak as individuals. They should not be thought of as delegates or "mouthpieces" of parents, they do not vote for all parents in general. They have equal status in the work of the Governing Body and have voting rights.
