There are over 300,000 school governors across England, making them the largest group of volunteers in the country.
The governing body contributes to the school by fulfilling three roles:
- Providing a strategic view
- Acting as a critical friend
- Ensuring accountability
Elected governors serve a four-year term of office, which can be renewed after this period (with the exception of parent governors if their children leave the school). The Chair of Governors is elected annually.
The full governing body meets regularly throughout the school year to receive a report from the Headteacher and to review the development of the school. In addition, governors share responsibility with the staff through sub-committees for areas such as:
- Health and safety
- Buildings and grounds
- Curriculum and staffing
- Recruitment and appointment of new staff
To compare Goring CE Primary School with other schools, please use the GOV.UK benchmarking tool.
