In England, Wales and Northern Ireland, School Governors are members of a school's Governing Body.They have responsibility for raising school standards through their three core strategic functions of:

 

a. Ensuring clarity of vision, ethos and strategic direction;

b. Holding the headteacher to account for the educational performance of the school and its pupils; and

c. Overseeing the financial performance of the school and making sure its money is well spent.

 

They are the largest volunteer force in the country.
