The Role of the Governing Body

The role of school governors is to contribute to the work of the governing board in enabling high standards of achievement for all children and young people by:

  • ensuring clarity of vision, ethos and strategic direction
  • holding executive leaders to account for the educational performance of the organisation and its pupils, and the performance management of staff
  • overseeing the financial performance of the organisation and making sure its money is well spent.

In order to perform this role well, a governor is expected to:

  • get to know the school, including visiting the school occasionally during school hours and in agreement with the headteacher, and gaining a good understanding of the school’s strengths and weaknesses
  • attend induction training and regular relevant training and development events
  • attend meetings (full governing board meetings and committee meetings) and read all the papers before the meeting
  • act in the best interests of all the pupils of the school
  • behave in a professional manner, as set down in the governing board’s code of conduct, including acting in strict confidence

If you need to contact the chair of governors, Kath Cutler, for any reason you can do so by calling 01482 825377, e-mailing or sending any letters addressed to Mrs K Cutler to Biggin Hill Primary Academy, Biggin Avenue, Hull, HU7 4RL.
