Barnes Farm Infant School

Building Futures, Inspiring Success


The Board of Govenors is made up of the Head Teacher, a member of staff, parents, one person appointed by the Local Authority, and representatives of the local community.  They meet at least once a term as a full Governing Body, as well as in committee meetings.

What are their responsibilities?

  • They decide, with the Head Teacher, the aims and policies of the school and how the standards of education can be improved.

  • They decide in general terms, how the school should be run.  The Head Teacher is responsible for the day-to-day management of the school.

  • With the Head Teacher and staff, governors help to draw up the School Development Plan.

  • They help, with the Head Teacher and the Local Authority, to decide how to spend the school budget.

  • They make sure that the national Curriculum, Foundation Stage Curriculum and Religious Education curriculum are taught appropriately, and that the school reports on children’s attainment within this.

  • They select the Head Teacher.

  • They assist in appointing other new staff.

  • They act as a link between the school and the local community.

  • They draw up an action plan after an Ofsted inspection, and make sure that it is put into place.

Individual governors have no power: the Governing Body acts together.
