Governors are one of the largest volunteer forces in the country and have an important part to play in raising school standards. School governors provide strategic leadership and accountability in schools. The role of the governing board is key to the effectiveness of a school.

Following a recent audit and reconstitution, we are fortunate to have a range of skills from our governing body and a wealth of experience. All members have agreed to serve a term of four years.

 The 3 core functions of a governing board are:

• Ensuring clarity of vision, ethos and strategic direction

• Holding executive leaders to account for the educational performance of the organisation and its pupils, and the performance management of staff

 • Overseeing the financial performance of the organisation and making sure its money is well spent.

Roose Community Primary School Governing Body Instrument of Government states that the body should consist of:

2 parent Governors

1 LA Governor

1 Staff Governor

1 Headteacher

8 co-opted Governors

The term of office for all categories is 4 years
