What is the Role of a Governor?
A governor is part of a team – The Governing Body (which includes the Headteacher). The individual governor has no power or responsibility – only the full Governing Body has.

Welcome to the Governors’ page of Streethouse School. We hope you will find it helpful to read about what the Governing Body do. Governors play an important part in the life and work of the school. In order to help the Governors undertake responsibilities and duties effectively and efficiently, they are guided and supported by the local authority. There is a wide range of training opportunities available.
CONTACTING THE GOVERNORS
Most queries about the management of Streethouse School and the progress of any individual child should be directed in the first instance to the school itself. However, the Chairperson or other Governors will be happy to answer any more general questions, particularly in relation to the role of the Governing Body. Letters or e-mail should be sent to the school for our attention.
WHAT ARE THE GOVERNORS' ROLES?
Governors do not manage the school, this is the role of the Headteacher and her Leadership team. The Governing Body has overall responsibility for the conduct of Streethouse School and within that, particular responsibilities to promote high quality teaching and learning and therefore raise standards of education and the welfare of pupils. All of this is contained in a legal framework. Governors are responsible for the strategic vision and direction of the school and for supporting the Head and her staff in working towards achieving that vision.
WHAT EXACTLY DO THE GOVERNORS DO?
HOW DO THEY DO IT?
Governors meet on a regular basis in formal committees. The full Governing Body meets each term along with those committees dealing with the curriculum, finance, health and safety and buildings. Additionally, individual Governors are linked with various aspects of the work of the school. Reports are submitted regularly by staff throughout the year. Whenever possible, Governors support staff and pupils by attending the many events that take place during the course of the year.
