Being a School Governor at Willow Farm Primary School


At Willow Farm we have a Governing Body of a maximum of 10 people.  This comprises of 2 Parent Governors, 3 Staff Governors (including the Headteacher) and 5 Trust Appointed.


Briefly, the role of governor involves being part of a friendly efficient team who actively support and challenge the school working alongside the Head Teacher as a critical friend. Much of the work of the Governing Body goes unseen, but they play a key role in helping the school provide the best education for the pupils.


The Governing Body plays an active role in the strategic development of the school. Typically a Governor will attend two meetings per term. Each Governor is also responsible for monitoring and evaluating a particular curriculum area. As a link Governor, they will report on a particular subject area and will meet the member of staff responsible for this subject with a view to promoting high standards of educational achievement, including target setting, managing the budget, reporting results and performance, performance management, health and safety inspections and policy.


The minutes of our Governing Body meetings are displayed in the entrance area at school.


If you would like any more information on either being a Governors or finding out more about their role please just pop into school and ask.
