Streethouse Junior, Infants & Nursery School



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.


The main aim of the Governing Body is to promote high standards and to help schools provide the best possible education for all pupils.


The Governing Body should be particularly interested in such things as :


  • The school’s policies;
  • How the school works with parents and the local community;
  • The priorities of the school’s development plan;
  • The way the school’s financial planning reflects its priorities;
  • The values the school encourages;
  • The overall balance and quality of the education offered to children; and
  • The general standards of achievement.
  • Check that policies and plans are having the desired effect;
  • Develop a good understanding of the strengths and weaknesses of the school.
  • The governing body should make certain that parents and others in the local community are kept informed about the way that the school is developing.




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.



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.



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.




  • Agree the aims, objectives and values of the school

  • Make sure the National Curriculum is taught and there is sufficient staff to teach it
  • Monitor and review the school’s progress
  • Ensure individual pupils’ needs are met, including additional needs
  • Recruit and select staff
  • Give parents and other interested local people information about the school
  • Produce action plans following school inspections
  • Establish positive links with the local business and wider communities
  • Support the day-to-day operational decisions taken by the Headteacher
  • Promote the effectiveness of Streethouse School's Governing Body by attending relevant training in order to develop knowledge and understanding of the complex nature of schools today.



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.
