Governance

The Role of a Governor

The Education Fellowship board is the governing body of all TEF schools. TEF retains an Academy Advisory Board (AAB) structure and welcomes the challenge, the support and advice that governing body provides to the Head teacher and the school. TEF appoint the Governors to the AAB.

The role of the AAB is vital for the day to day running of the school and they are local representatives for TEF in the school and the community. Our Governors know the local community, they know the school and they are uniquely placed to give the Head teacher the relevant support and advice.

Governors are responsible for links with the faculties, which they are required to report on at every meeting. This helps to ensure that attainment and progress and the strategies in place to achieve these are successful. Governors also attend Governors In-Days, which give them the opportunity to:

* Recognise and celebrate success
* Develop relationships with staff
* Get to know the students
* Understand the environment in which teachers are working
* See policies and/or schemes of work in action

This also gives teachers the opportunity to:

* Ensure the AAB understands the reality of the classroom
* Understand better the governors’ roles and responsibilities
* Have the opportunity to reflect on practice through discussion
* Highlight the need for particular resources

You may contact the Clerk of the Governors by emailing clerk@wrenn-academy.net
