Who can be a school governor?
You don't have to have children at the school to be a governor. However, you do have to be over 18, and pass a formal check for your suitability to be within a school. No specific qualifications are required but there are certain expectations.
What's really important is that you have the skills, time and commitment to help drive school improvement and the passion and ambition to achieve the best possible education for the children in the school.
Governance at Queensway Infant School & Nursery include these core features:
Governing Body meetings are held regularly. The purpose of these meetings is to scrutinise, challenge and support the work of the school, led by the Headteacher. Their role is to be a ‘critical friend’ and to ensure that the school is achieving the highest possible outcomes for learners in the school.
The Governing Body are rigorous and robust in their attention to detail; they help set the budget, they input into the school development plan, they are involved in the appointment process of staff and they hold the Headteacher to account. Through the different meetings that take place, the governing body ensures that policies are reviewed, the performance data of year groups is analysed and staff are given every opportunity to excel.
The expectation placed upon the governing body by Ofsted is that the governors know the school, know its priorities for improvement and support the Headteacher and staff in meeting these aims and ambitions.
The governing body of Queensway Infant School and Nursery works extremely hard to fulfil these duties. The on-going success of the school is dependent in part to the diligence and expertise that exists within the group and the governors are committed to developing the school to achieve good outcomes for all.
