Being a school governor is demanding but very rewarding and is a good way to support your children’s school, your community and your parish.  School governing bodies are responsible for working with the school to ensure that it delivers a good quality education. Together with the headteacher, who is responsible for day-to-day management, they set the school’s aims and policies. The role is a partnership.


Our Governors have three main roles which are:

  • To provide strategic direction for the school
  • To act as a critical friend to the headteacher
  • To ensure accountability


The term of office for a school governor is four years. Most schools have a full governing body meeting once a term (for approximately 2 hours), at St Peter’s we have a full governing body meeting every half term.  You also join a committee which usually meets at least once a term.  The committee you join can work to your strengths and skills, ie finance or curriculum or personnel.   Most governors find they usually attend meetings or visit a school three or four times each term, minimum.  We also shadow a class and try to visit the teacher and class termly.


New governors attend a one or two day induction course.  This is essential to helping us understand our role so you can begin to make a positive difference to our governing body. The workshops are run across Bucks and tutors do their best to make them simple, straightforward and fun.  Training offered to governors in Bucks is high quality , varied and interesting.  The cost of training is part of the school budget and ongoing school development.


Should I become a governor?

Being a governor is challenging and rewarding.  You feel as if you have a real impact on the education of our children.  Most of the time it is enjoyable, but when it is required governors need to be critical yet supportive to the staff of the school and to the parents-always remembering the reason we do the volunteer role-our children and their education.
