The School Governors

The governing body's main aim is to help raise standards of achievement and make sure the school provides a good quality education.


The day-to-day management of the school is the responsibility of the headteacher and staff. Rather than manage, governors are there to help shape the school's future direction and focus.


Governors work as a team. Individual governors have no power or responsibility. It is only the full governing body which has legal duties and powers and all governors share in that corporate responsibility.


Governors are at the heart of how a school operates. It's important they get things right. How they do their job affects the interests of pupils, staff morale and how the school is seen by parents and others in the community. They are not there to rubber stamp decisions. Governors are responsible for how the school is performing. They have to be prepared to support and challenge their headteacher by gathering views, asking questions and deciding what's best for the pupils.


The task can be divided into three main roles:


  • providing a strategic overview
  • acting as a critical friend to the school
  • ensuring accountability.


Holmer’s governors are proud to be part of this fantastic school! We support the pupils, staff and parents in making it even better.
