Governors

What is a school governor?
A school governor is a member of a school’s governing body, which is made up of volunteers. The governing body is the school’s accountable body. The governing body are strategic decision makers and vision setters in the school, and working together with the head teacher and senior leadership team, are fundamental to a school’s success.

Governors are the strategic leaders of our schools and have a vital role to play in driving up school and pupil performance and ensuring that resources are used well to give every child the best possible education. Governors have a strong focus on three core strategic functions:

  • Ensuring clarity of vision, ethos and strategic direction.
  • Holding the head teacher to account for the educational performance of the school and its pupils, and the performance management of staff.
  • Overseeing the financial performance of the school and making sure its money is well spent.


Why become a school governor?
It is the Council’s aspiration that all children and young people in Croydon attend high performing schools that are schools of choice. Governors are a key part of the overall system for school accountability. If you care about children’s education then becoming a governor will help you make a difference. Being a governor is demanding and challenging, but very rewarding and fulfilling. It also helps you to:

  • Make a difference.
  • Get to know your community.
  • Develop your skills.
  • Improve your knowledge about the education sector.
