School Governors

Information and resources to help Boards of Governors become more effective.

Boards of Governors play an extremely important role in supporting schools to ensure that pupils have every opportunity to develop to their full potential within a caring and stimulating learning environment.

As schools are accountable for what they do, governors must work in close partnership with the principal, staff, parents and pupils to monitor and evaluate the effectiveness of their school in providing the best quality education for all pupils within the school.

The Education Authority acknowledges and thanks all school governors for their time, commitment and dedication to improving educational standards in all our schools.
