|What do governors do? School governors provide strategic leadership and accountability in schools. Their role is strategic, not operational. They work with the school to monitor and guide its efforts to raise the achievement of our pupils. Governors appoint the head teacher and deputy headteacher. It is governors who hold the main responsibility for finance in schools, and they work with the school to ensure that the needs of all people are met.
