Governors

SEN Resources

School governors play an indispensable role in the governance and strategic direction of educational institutions. As volunteers, they shoulder significant responsibilities that are crucial for the school’s success, including planning the strategic direction, overseeing financial performance, and holding the school leadership accountable. These core functions ensure that schools operate within their means while striving for excellence in education. Governors are pivotal in driving school improvement, engaging with a wide range of school activities, from policy development to financial planning. Their commitment involves attending approximately six meetings per year, where they make key decisions and provide oversight. This section aims to shed light on the vital work of school governors, offering resources, guidance, and insights for current and prospective governors to fulfill their roles effectively, thereby contributing to the overarching goal of enhancing educational outcomes for all students.
