Individual Governor Responsibilities

Governors (Trustees) have a responsibility to monitor and evaluate the progress of the School and contribute to the School self evaluation process. This can be done through a variety of methods including reports from the head teacher and senior staff, analysis of statistical data and, perhaps most importantly, through first hand observation.

The Governors agree their link areas and nominate individual Governors at the first meeting of the academic year which is followed up with an agreed timetable for visits.  Once the agreement has been reached as to appropriate links it is made clear what is expected and activities identified.  A record of any visit or activity is produced and kept in a file maintained for that purpose.

Activities and purpose will clearly not be the same for all links' but might include:

  • Making focused visits to school
  • Exploring specific aspects within the link area to gain deeper understanding of relevant issues
  • Establishing regular contact with person(s) within the college with responsibility for the Governors chosen link area
  • Providing  support and encouragement and a listening ear for staff member with whom they are linked
  • Monitoring provision of equipment  and use of school facilities
  • Attending at relevant training, including relevant INSET days
  • Being  involved with establishing/monitoring/evaluating relevant policies adopted by the Governing Board within their chosen link area
  • Considering ways to encourage parental involvement
  • Participating, as agreed, with subject leaders/Head teacher in the preparation of the Self Evaluation Form
  • Becoming familiar with areas within School Development Plan
  • Reporting back, following visit, making recommendations as appropriate either via committees or full Governing Board meetings
  • Keeping abreast of developments both local and nationally.
