The Role of Governors

Cromer Road Primary School governors are drawn from different parts of the school community, ensuring a sufficient diversity of views and experience is represented:

  • Parent governors - selected by election (or appointment if insufficient people stand for election) and drawn from parents and carers of children at the school.
  • Staff governors - selected by election from teaching and support staff paid to work at the school
  • Local Authority governors - appointed by the Local Authority and may be local councillors
  • Co-opted Governors -  Co-opted by the Cromer Road Governing Body for their particular skills or experience

Governors have a range of duties and powers and a general strategic role to challenge and support the school to deliver high standards of educational achievement. This includes; helping set challenging targets for pupil achievement, overseeing the management of school finances, making sure the curriculum is balanced and broadly based and the learning environment is safe, appointing the Headteacher and reviewing the Headteacher's performance.  There are four sub-committees of the Governing Body which facilitate its work and they are:

  • The Curriculum Committee
  • The Finance Committee
  • The Pay Committee
  • The Personnel and Pupil Welfare Committee.
