How to be a Governor

Being a Governor is a great way to be part of Oakgrove whilst putting something back into the community.

Who can be a Governor?

  •  Staff elected by the Head, teachers and support staff at the school. The headteacher is invited to be on the Governing Body
  •  Persons appointed by Stockport Council know as the LA Governors
  •  Persons from the community usually appointed by the other members of the Governing Body

How long can you be a Governor for?

Usually a Governor is appointed for a period of four years but may subsequently be eligible for re-appointment or re-election.

What do Governors do?

Governors work as a team called the Governing Board.

The Governing Board is responsible for making sure the school provides good quality education. Raising educational standards in school is now a key priority. This has the best chance of happening when there are high expectations of what pupils can achieve.

Governors also promote effective ways of teaching and learning when setting the school aims and policies. They do this together with the head teacher, who is responsible for the day-to-day management of the school.

Every school must have a Governing Board. The membership will vary according to the type of school. The Governing Board has some discretion of the numbers of governors.

Governing Boards are responsible to parents, funders and the community. The Governing Board’s main role is to help raise standards of achievement:

• It is accountable for the performance of the school to parents and the wider community

• It plans the school’s future direction with particular reference to the special needs of the pupils

• It selects the headteacher

• It makes decisions on the school’s budget and staffing

• It makes sure the National Curriculum is taught

• It decides how the school can encourage pupil’s spiritual, moral and social development

• It makes sure the school provides for all its pupils to meet their special needs and help them to achieve their potential
