Who are school governors and what do they do?

School governors form the largest volunteer group in the United Kingdom. They come from every walk of life but have one thing in common: they want to make a difference to children’s education. Governing boards are the strategic decision makers and vision setters in every school and academy. They play a vital role in ensuring the best possible education for every child by creating robust accountability for school leaders. Every board has three core strategic functions as identified by the Department for Education (DfE)’s Governance Handbook:
