Headteacher: Mrs V. Campos

An introduction to the role of the Governor



As set out in our Code of Conduct for the Governing Body document, the governing body has the following core strategic functions:


Establishing the strategic direction by:

  • Setting the vision, values, and objectives for the school
  • Agreeing the school improvement strategy with priorities and targets 
  • Meeting statutory duties


Ensuring accountability by: 

  • Appointing the Headteacher 
  • Monitoring progress towards targets 
  • Performance managing the Headteacher 
  • Engaging with stakeholders
  • Contributing to school self-evaluation 


Ensuring financial probity by:

  • Setting the budget 
  • Monitoring spending against the budget 
  • Ensuring value for money is obtained 
  • Ensuring risks to the organisation are managed 


To ensure these core strategic functions are met, each individual governor has a role to play within the governing body.   While the role demands a level of time and effort, the Governing Board work together as a team and all accept fair responsibility in effectively meeting our statutory duties.


As individual governors we are expected to: 

  • rigorously and consistently monitor SIP targets and data to ensure progress 
  • participate in events and training opportunities throughout the year 
  • be a link governor for a subject area or key stage 
  • ask questions to explore issues further 
  • ensure we deliver the very best education possible for the children in Boxmoor Primary School
  • seek to provide the appropriate balance of support and challenge so that the school fulfils its statutory duties 
  • strive to build further on achievements.


If you need to contact the Governors to raise any issue in confidence, you can do so either by letter via the school office or by email -
