The Department for Education has a good web page that sets out the remit and responsibilities of the governors', it can be found here.

Governors' work with senior leaders in the strategic development of the school and in the standards of achievement. Duties include setting the school's vision, aims and objectives, approving the school's budget and appointing the head teacher. The Governors' Code of Conduct outlines the duties and responsibilities expected by Brighton & Hove LEA, whilst the Diocese also have a Code of Conduct for foundation governors' of a Church School.

Governors' must both support and challenge the head teacher, so they need to gain an understanding of the school's overall performance in order to explain its decisions and actions. They do this by attending regular meetings, carrying out school visits and meeting with senior leaders.

Governors' also attend training in order to keep up to date with the requirements of their role. Governors' work as a team and make collective decisions.

Full Governors' Meetings, will be held on the following dates for this academic year:
