School governors are people who wish to make a positive contribution to children’s education. No special qualifications are required, but enthusiasm, commitment and an interest in education are important qualities to bring to a governor post.

 What is the role of the governing body?

Governing bodies are responsible and accountable for all major decisions about the school and its future.  Governors have a legal responsibility to conduct the school with a view to promoting high standards of educational achievement.  They set the school's vision and strategic aims, monitor and evaluate performance acting as a critical friend to the headteacher and ensure the school is accountable to those it serves.

 Governing bodies are made up of key stakeholders:

  • Parents - parent governors are elected by other parents at the school
  • Staff - (including the head teacher) - teaching and other staff are elected by the school staff
  • The community - the governing body appoints community governors i.e. members of the community
  • The LA - the Local Authority appoints one or more local education authority governor/s

 The Governing Body at Healey School comprises of a fully committed team:
