Meet the Governors

School governors are made up of parents, people from the local community, staff from the school and representatives from the Local Authority (LA).


How are governors chosen?

Parent governors are elected by parents and staff governors are elected by Eyres Monsell staff. Leicester City appoints the LA governors, while community governors are appointed by the governing body. All governors initially serve for a period of four years. At the end of the four years, they can stand for re-election or be re-appointed.

Whenever there is a vacancy for a parent governor, this is advertised in newsletters and posters, with details on the election process.


How can I contact the school governors?

The governors can be contacted through the school office. Governors are also present at parents evenings so they are visible within the school environment.

What do governors do?

Governors are there to make sure the school is being run well and the teaching is of a high standard.

 

Governors are responsible for major decisions about the school and its future. For instance they set the annual budget and approve targets and policies for the school. They also appoint the head teacher.

 

While the head teacher is responsible for the day-to-day running of the school, school governors look at the bigger picture.

Governors are answerable to parents and the local authority for the school’s performance. As well as supporting the school and staff, governors are expected to challenge or question the performance of the head teacher and the school.

 

Governors are also involved in dealing with complaints from parents. Parents are encouraged to approach their child’s teacher and/or the Head teacher in the first instance with any complaint. Governors only become involved when the satisfactory resolution of the complaint has not been possible.

 

What does it take to be a governor ?

Governors don’t need any special qualifications. They just need enthusiasm, commitment, and an interest in contributing to the school. Training is provided for new governors.

 

Governors spend about 6 hours a month on school matters. They attend a full governing body meeting, usually once a term, usually on a Thursday evening.

Most governors also sit on at least one smaller committee to look at specific areas of school life. These committees meet once a term.

 

Governors also spend time reading papers, visiting the school and attending training.
