The Role of the Board of Governors A schools’ Board of Governors is made up of representatives from a wide range of interests and backgrounds with the shared goal of providing the best possible education and educational opportunities for all pupils. Governors are involved in setting the strategic direction for the school and taking corporate decisions in relation to the statutory functions of the Board of Governors. Example areas of responsibility include: 

  • Setting the school’s vision, aims, plans and policies
  • Establishing and maintaining the school’s ethos
  • Monitoring and evaluating school performance
  • Managing school funds economically, effectively, and efficiently in line with published guidance
  • Curriculum planning, including examinations management and administration policy
  • Admissions
  • Employment issues • Pupil pastoral care and protection issues The responsibility for governing the school is shared by the whole Board of Governors. Governors participate in the decision making for a wide range of proposals and issues, and ultimately vote on and agree important changes which impact the school, pupils, and staff. The day-to-day operation of the school is delegated to the principal.

The full Board of Governors met virtually on several occasions  to discuss many aspects of school life and to hear the principal’s report on the day-to-day management of the school. Sub Committee work of the Board of Governors was curtailed. Admissions to preschool and Primary One was given due consideration.
