The Role of Governors

The role of Jesse Gray's Governing Body is to be a critical friend to the headteacher.  It does this by providing strategic leadership to the school and ensuring there is accountability for pupil outcomes. The Governing Body has three key functions: 

  • To ensure the school has a clear vision, ethos and strategic direction.
  • Hold the Headteacher to account for the educational performance of the school and its pupils.
  • Oversee the financial performance of the school and make sure the money is well spent. 

Individual governors can have  a number of different roles as part of the governing body. Each governor acts as a Link Governor for specific year groups and/or subjects. They work with teachers and subject leads to oversee a particular aspect of the work of the school.  Its a great way for governors to develop a more in depth understanding of a particular aspect of the school and get to know staff and pupils.
