Holne Chase Governors
The Role of a School Governor
Governors are part of a team that work together to ensure that all pupils can develop as individuals and receive an outstanding education. Working closely with the headteacher and staff, they have responsibility for the strategic management of the school.
Governors attend regular governing body meetings, read the paperwork and visit the school. All schools have a full governing body meeting once a term, occasionally two, and each governor joins a committee. The committee is usually where the detailed discussion and work takes place.
At Holne Chase we have four committees:
Full Governing Body
Children, Families and Community
Each Committee has a chair, a vice-chair and committee members.
All new governors receive extensive training organised by Milton Keynes Council. One of the Council’s highest priorities is to raise the attainment of all its pupils and governors are expected to pro-actively challenge the work of the school and to monitor and evaluate its performance.
People will bring different skills and experiences to the role which may better qualify them for a specific category of governor. As part of the Council’s school improvement strategy, new arrangements have been introduced to improve the capability of LA governors to maintained schools judged by Ofsted to be inadequate, satisfactory or requiring improvement.
