Rochford Primary and Nursery School

The School Governors

School Governors are one of the country's largest voluntary groups with around 300,000 contributing to strategic development and raising standards of achievement at more than 30,000 schools.

Our Governing Body works hard to ensure the best for the children.

School governors have a wide range of responsibilities. They are in charge of planning the school’s future direction and can thereby help raise the standards of pupil achievement. Governors are also accountable to parents and their wider community for the performance of the school.

There are three core functions of a governing body, as reflected in Ofsted’s inspection:

They are also responsible for specific actions such as ensuring that there is a procedure in place for handling complaints; approving the school budget; and appointing the headteacher.

Governing bodies meet at least three times a year and usually rely on committees to advise their decisions. Committees may address issues such as staffing, finance, curriculum and premises. Further information can be found on
