Home Our School Governors FOBC Office

Every school has a Governing Body which is made up of the following:

- parents of children who attend the school

- teachers from the school

- people appointed by the Local Education Authority.

- businessmen and women and others working within the local community


The Governors have a very important role to play. In conjunction with the Headteacher they are involved in:

- Interviewing and selecting staff.

- Deciding how the school budget is spent.

- Overseeing the curriculum.

- Setting standards of behaviour.


Governors usually serve for a period of four years and they require no special qualifications. All Governors are informed about their responsibilities and training is available. The Governing Body meets at least once a term and there are additional meetings for other business. At the end of each year Governors prepare a report for parents, and they are invited to a meeting to discuss its contents.
