Royal Rise Governing Body

 

The role of a school governor is demanding but very rewarding and is a good way to give back to your local community.  School governing bodies are responsible for working with the school to ensure that it delivers a good quality education. Together with the headteacher, who is responsible for day-to-day management, they set the school's aims and policies.

Key roles of school governors:

  • To ensure clarity of vision, ethos and strategic direction
  • To hold the headteacher to account for the educational performance of the school and its  pupils, and the performance management of staff
  • To oversee the financial performance of the school and make sure its money is well spent 

 

Governors also carry out a number of other important duties, which include:

  • Determining how the school's budget is spent
  • The appointing and dismissing of staff
  • Hearing appeals and grievances
  • Forming policy on the school's curriculum and collective worship
  • Setting standards for pupils' behaviour and discipline
  • Making sure school buildings are welcoming and safe
  • Setting and monitoring the school's aims and policies  

 

Governor's act as a critical friend to the school’s leadership team and challenge them about the performance of the school. The governors are responsible to the Trustees of Cygnus Academies Trust.

 

 

 

If you are committed to raising standards for children's learning and for the wellbeing of the school and are perhaps interested in becoming a school governor please contact the Chair of Governors via the school office in the first instance.
