Heworth Grange Governors

The Role of a Governor

School governors lead schools, they don’t manage them. They are there to give a long-term strategic direction to how the school is run; to be critical friends to the school; and to ensure the school is accountable for its actions. Governors discuss and have input on:

  • School policies, such as discipline, dress, sport, bullying and homework
  • Long term plans and the future of the school
  • How the school budget will be spent
  • How the school will try to reach performance targets
  • Appointment and dismissal of staff
  • Complaints from pupils, staff and parents
  • Repair and maintenance of school buildings
  • Use of school premises outside school hours

The governing body often appoints sub-committees of governors to look at specific issues such as the school’s finance, staffing, curriculum and premises.
