Robert Peel Primary School

Governors

The role of a Governor has been described as that of a ‘Critical Friend’.  Governors are volunteers drawn from the staff, parents and wider community of the school.  


Governors endeavour to get to know the school well by visiting it regularly and supporting events.

 

The role of the governor includes:

  • Setting the school's aims and policies 
  • Improving standards of teaching and achievement 
  • Setting the school's budget plan and monitoring expenditure 
  • Taking part in the process of interviewing and appointing teachers and support staff
  • Acting as a link between the local community and the school 
  • Dealing with complaints about the school


Governors serve for terms of up to four years, but they may serve for longer if re-elected. The Full Board of the Governing Body meets approximately five times in each school year, but a lot of the detailed work is entrusted to committees who report back to the Full Board. 
Committees meet approximately once each half term.  The main committees are Standards, Curriculum, Inclusion & Pupils and Finance, Personnel & Premises.
