The role of the Governing Board is to provide strategic management and to support the work of the headteacher and other staff in school. The headteacher of the school is responsible for day-to-day management of the school.
Governors appoint the headteacher and may be involved in the appointment of other staff. Together with the headteacher, we also have a role in monitoring the school’s progress and in setting annual targets for the school’s performance. The Governing Board in school is accountable for the use of public funds, the quality of education provided and the wider contribution to the community.
The Governing Board in school is made up of staff representatives, community governors, including parents, and other local sponsors. All governors have equal status, however they are appointed.
Becoming a governor is a rewarding way of making an important contribution to education. It can help you develop your existing skills and learn new ones.
Our governors work extremely hard and are highly valued in school. They give their time and skills incredibly generously to ensure Banks Lane Junior School is the best it can be.
