Governors work as a team. They are responsible for making sure the school provides a good quality education for all pupils. Raising educational standards in school is a key priority. This has the best chance of happening when there are high expectations of what pupils can achieve.

Governors promote effective ways of teaching and learning when setting the school aims and policies. They do this together with the head teacher, who is responsible for the day-to-day management of the school. Head teachers are recruited and selected by governors - and most head teachers choose to be governors themselves.

Governing boards are accountable to parents, the local community and the Local Authority. Appointments are for three or usually for four years. The governing board's main role is to help raise pupils' standards of achievement.
