What do we do

We help schools provide the best possible education for their pupils by:

  • Thinking and working strategically (with the long term in mind) to help to raise standards for all the children
  • Monitoring and evaluating progress towards the school’s priorities and targets
  • Supporting the headteacher and staff as well as challenging their expectations – being a critical friend
  • Ensuring the accountability of the governing body to the parents and of the headteacher to the governing body

The responsibilities and powers have to be exercised in partnership with the headteacher and staff.  Governors do not intervene in the day-to-day running of the school. When there are weaknesses in the school they have a duty to take action.


We don't:

  • Deal with issues with a particular parental communication
  • Deal with issues one parent has with their child’s attainment or progress


We do:

  • Consider how the school could improve its overall communication with parents
  • Hold the school to account for the attainment or progress of all children
