Role of a Governor?

What do governors do ?
 Our main role as governors is :

  • To provide a strategic view of where the school is heading.
  • To provide support and appropriate challenge to the school.
  • To hold the school to account for the quality of the education it provides.
  • To safeguard and promote the welfare of children who are pupils at the school.

See below for a link to a short e-learning programme that answers many of the frequently asked questions about the role of a governor and a copy of 'Your School Governors' leaflet produced to tell you more about the role of Fairfield's Governors.
