A Guide for Governors

“Every School a Good School – The Governors Role” is a DE reference guide outlining the roles and responsibilities of school Boards of Governors.

It provides school governors with access to key information on a variety of school management issues relating to a range of their responsibilities.

Although the range of responsibilities within the guide is significant, governors do not need to be experts to manage them.  Help and advice is available from various sources including the school principal, the EA, Catholic Council for Maintained Schools (CCMS), Northern Ireland Council for Integrated Education (NICIE), Governing Body Association (GBA), Controlled Schools Support Council (CSSC) and Comhairle na Gaelscolaíochta (CnaG). 

The guide is available to download from the DE website.
