School governors are people who want to make a positive contribution to children’s education.

Governors are one of the largest volunteer forces in the country and have an important part to play in raising school standards.

The Headteacher is responsible for the internal organisation, management and control of the school and the implementation of the strategic framework established by the governing body.

School governors provide strategic leadership and accountability in schools. Governors appoint the headteacher. At Broadheath there is an Executive Headteacher and a Head of School. Governors have a responsibility to oversee finance in schools, and it is governors who work with the headteacher to make decisions about balancing resources. 
Each individual governor is a member the governing body, which is established in law as a corporate body. To access the "Instrument of Government" click here. Individual governors may not act independently of the rest of the governing board; decisions are the joint responsibility of the governing board.  

The role of the governing board is a strategic one, its key functions are to:

  • Help set the aims and objectives for the school
  • Help set the policies for achieving those aims and objectives
  • Set the targets for achieving those aims and objectives
  • Monitor and evaluate the progress the school is making towards achievement of its aims and objectives
  • Be a source of challenge and support to the headteacher (a critical friend)

Almost anyone over 18 years of age can become a governor. There are no particular qualifications or requirements, other than a willingness to give time to the role and a capacity for working with other people. All Governors sign up to the "Code of Conduct" for our Governing body.

There are different categories of governor:

  • Parent
  • Staff
  • Foundation
  • Local authority
  • Co-opted
