Governors at Hall Meadow

School governors are people from the local community who wish to make a positive contribution to children’s education. They must be aged 18 or over at the date of their election or appointment. Persons under 18 may become Associate Members.  There is no upper age limit.

Governors form the largest volunteer force in the country and have an important part to play in raising school standards through their three key roles of setting strategic direction, ensuring accountability and monitoring and evaluating school performance.

"A governing body's overriding responsibility is to work in partnership with the head teacher to promote continuous improvement in the performance of the school.  This involves the establishment of a development plan, the setting of challenging but achievable targets and the interpretation of information to access progress and determine appropriate action.

Aligned to its improvement role, the governing body is there to be a critical friend who can provide the right balance between supporting and challenging the performance of both the head teacher and the school." (School Governor Recruitment Toolkit)
