Chair of Governors

Becoming a Governor

Governing bodies are responsible for a wide range of matters.  Their duties include management of the school budget, school effectiveness, preparation for OfSTED inspection, formulation and execution of post-OfSTED Action Plan and involvement in a variety of personnel and pupil issues.  In your role as a school governor, you will be supported in these duties by other experienced members of the governing body, the co-headteachers, the clerk to the governors and Peterborough Diocese Education Trust (PDET).

All governors need:

  • Commitment to improving education for all pupils
  • Ability to work in a team and take collective responsibility for decisions
  • Willingness to learn
  • Commitment to the school’s vision and ethos
