Romanby Primary School Governing Body

What Do Governors Do?

The governors’ work affects most aspects of the school’s work.  They establish, with the Headteacher, aims for the school, and approve policies – for the curriculum, behaviour and discipline, for example; and are responsible for the school’s budget and the use and maintenance of the premises.  More generally, they are expected to be in touch with the local community and to help guide the school to meet the community’s educational needs. They are also expected to help the school explain to the community what the school is trying to achieve for their children. The governors, together as a body, have a range of legal responsibilities, so being a governor is an important commitment and new governors should be willing to attend training to help them learn what is entailed. As well as parents, the governing body is made up of governors appointed by the Local Authority (the County Council), school staff, the headteacher and governors appointed by the rest of the governing body (co-opted governors).

A leaflet, providing further information, is available either in schools or from the Governor Support, County Hall, Northallerton, tel. 01609 532936, e-mail us using the form at the bottom of this page.

Our governors meet monthly and as such they consider all school matters as a whole governing body rather than in separate committees. Below is a update about their work so far this year as well as more information about their role.
