School Governors undertake a really important strategic role in the development of schools, and form part of the largest volunteer group in the country. The role of Governing Bodies is as follows:

  • Ensure clarity of vision, ethos and strategic direction
  • Hold the Headteacher to account for the educational performance of the school and its pupils
  • Oversee the financial performance of the school and make sure its money is well spent

The Governors at Rollesby, really look forward to parents coming forward to join our team. They take their role very seriously and expect that all Governors attend meetings as well as training to fully understand their role. They are not involved in things like fund raising, nor do they get involved in the day to day running of the school. Their key role is ensuring the best possible education for the children in the school and moving the school forward to be the best it can be.
