Governors of St Thomas a Becket

 

What do School Governors do?

Governors work with senior leaders in the strategic development of the school and in raising standards of achievement.  Duties include setting the school’s vision, aims and objectives, approving the school budget and appointing the Headteacher.

 

Governors must both support and challenge the Headteacher, so need to gain an understanding of the school’s overall performance in order to explain its decisions and actions.  They do this by attending regular meetings, carrying out school visits and meeting with senior leaders.  They also attend training in order to keep up to date with requirements of their role.  Governors work as a team and make collective decisions.
