The Role of Governors.
The Governors of St George’s, as with all schools, play a vital role, ensuring that the school maintains excellent standards and is true to its vision and values. As a church school, Christian values are particularly important to St George’s.
The school has a wide range of strengths – the Christian ethos, the pastoral care, motivated and happy staff, the teaching and the community nature, to name but a few.
School Governors are not appointed to make operational decisions about the running of the school. These are the responsibility of the Headteacher. The role of the governing body is more strategic. The Governing Body serves as a source of challenge and support (a critical friend) to the Headteacher in:
· setting the school’s vision, ethos and strategic direction.
· challenging the Headteacher and holding her to account for the educational performance of the school and the pupils, and the performance management of the staff and
· overseeing the financial performance of the school, making sure that its money is well spent.
Each individual governor is a member of a governing board, which is established in law as a corporate body. Individual governors may not act independently of the rest of the governing board; decisions are the joint responsibility of the governing board.
Through our strategic oversight of the work of the school we support and strengthen the school to provide high quality education for all pupils.
