Information for new Governors

You should meet with the headteacher and/or chair of governors before your first meeting, so you can get to know them and ask any questions. You may also be given a mentor - an experienced governor who can help you learn on the job.


New governors should ask the clerk for:

  • The School Governor's Guide to the Law
  • Estyn Inspection Report and Action Plan
  • The School Prospectus
  • List of members on the governing body
  • A copy of the school staffing structure
  • A copy of the recent school budget report
  • The current School Development Plan
  • The most recent Annual Report to Parents
  • Minutes of recent governing body meetings
  • Calendar of governing body meetings
  • Plan of the school
  • Any other school policies
