King Charles Primary School


What are Governors?
Every school has a governing body. They meet at least once a term to make decisions on how the school is run. This involves:

Deciding what is taught

Setting standards of conduct

Interviewing and selecting staff

Deciding how the school budget is spent

Ensuring the school complies with all its legal obligations

Monitoring and evaluating the work of the school


The Governing body also has committees which consider specific areas, for instance Health and Safety, finance and personnel. The governing body then makes its decisions based on the advice of these committees.

The Governing Body consist of:

Parents of children attending the school


Governors appointed by the Local Authority

Governors from the community

Governors are elected every four years.

If you are interested in becoming a school governor please ask at the school office for further details.
