The purpose of having a governing body is:

• To help the school to set high standards by planning for the school’s future, and setting targets for school improvement;

• To keep the pressure up on school improvement;

• To be a true friend to the school, in good and bad times, offering the school its support and advice (critical friend);

• To help the school to be responsive to the needs of parents and the community and make the school more accountable to the public for what it does.


Effective governors:

• Do their homework, and get to know their school;

• Turn up regularly;

• Ask questions that are probing without being confrontational;

• Don’t go it alone;

• Recognise good work and support their school;

• Are not afraid to be critical when necessary.
