Who are school governors and what do they do?


School governors form the largest volunteer group in the United Kingdom.  Their role is strategic and they are responsible for:


  • developing a vision and strategy for the school
  • overseeing the financial performance of the school and making sure its money is well spent
  • holding the school leadership to account to ensure that every pupil has the best possible education


The headteacher is responsible for the operational aspects of a school.
