What do Governors do?

What do your school governors do?

Langton School Governors are part of the largest volunteer force in the country. Our function is to make a positive contribution to the children’s education and raise standards in our school.


Our blend of parent, co-opted, local authority and staff governors, as defined in the constitution of the governing body, allows us to achieve a broad representation as well as a range of skills and experience.

Individual governors also undertake specific responsibilities on behalf of the governing body. These include Health and Safety, Child Protection and responsibility for specific areas of the curriculum. These governors work with the relevant members of staff to monitor progress and ensure the children are happy, safe and making satisfactory progress. However, governors do not act independently and any decisions taken are the joint responsibility of the whole governing body.  

Full governing body meetings are held each half term. In addition, we have two committees to deal with the more detailed aspects of our work. At present, these are the Finance, Premises and Marketing committee and the  School Performance committee, with all governors being members of both.
