Guidance for Prospective Governors

The following guidance has been written to assist governing bodies with their duty to conduct informed parent and staff elections in which the expectations and credentials of prospective candidates are made clear.

Governing Body Role

Guidance for Prospective Governors

Being a school governor is both a rewarding and challenging experience. Governors provide strategic leadership and work in partnership with the headteacher and senior leaders in schools to ensure that every child gets the best possible education.

The demands on governors and governing bodies have changed dramatically in recent years and this guidance has been written to help aspiring governors understand the expectations and demands of the role of the Governing Body.

How the Governing Body Works

  • How the governing body is structured – Chair of Governors, 4 x Co-Opted Governors, 1 x LA Governor – non-affiliated, 2 x Parent Governors, 1 x Staff Governor, Headteacher and Clerk
  • Frequency of meetings – A Full Governors, Finance and Personnel Committees meet 4 times each academic year and are approximately 2 hours long. The three remaining committees – Personal Development, Behaviour and Welfare (Health and Safety); Residence; and Teaching, Learning & Assessment (Curriculum) – hold a meeting every term and these will range from 1-2 hours in length depending on the agenda.
