What do governors do at Birchwood C of E Primary School?

Together with our Headteacher, they are responsible for making sure our school provides good quality education.
They are involved in lots of the decision making that ensures the smooth running of the school but also its development.
New initiatives are often discussed and planned by the governors. In this way the governors are critical to the success and future improvement of the school.

What skills do governors need?

No formal qualifications are necessary but our school is keen to attract people in the community who can bring energy, experience, commitment and fresh ideas.

Being a governor can be very rewarding!

Despite the fact that governors are volunteers, they can get a great deal from the work and time they put in. It gives them a chance to:

  • make a difference to how well schools are run
  • see how their efforts help raise standards
  • do something positive for the next generation
  • serve the local community
  • help realise their own potential by learning new skills
  • enjoy working in a team

How much of your time is needed?

Our Governing Body meets at least once a term, usually after school or in the early evening. In addition, governors need to attend committee meetings, school events and appropriate training. Governors are encouraged to visit our school during the day to see us in action, and to get to know the staff and pupils. Governors usually serve for four years.

Our school is part of a local partnership, the Chair and Headteacher meet on a termly basis with their counterparts from these schools. Support & training is always an agenda item at these meetings.

What support will you receive?

Support, training and guidance are available from our school. If you would like to find out more about being a governor please contact the school office for an informal chat.
