Governors

School Governors are people who want to make a positive contribution to children’s education. Governors are one of the largest volunteer forces in the country and have an important part to play in raising school standards. The role of the governing body is key to the effectiveness of a school.

At Kemball School, our governors provide strategic leadership and accountability.  They achieve this by reviewing policies, setting aims and deciding on priorities for improvement.  They take advice on all of this from the Head teacher but then as a governing body make their own decisions.

As a critical friend, they offer support, constructive advice, a second opinion on proposals and assistance when needed.  They also challenge, ask questions and seek information in order to raise standards and attainment for all pupils.

Governors do not intervene with the day to day running of the school but their responsibilities are exercised in partnership with the Head teacher and the staff of Kemball.
