Code of Conduct

Governor conduct is underpinned by the following key principles;

  • To act in the best interests of the school – this may require balancing short and long term issues, school and community issues etc.
  • To work as a member of a team at all times and be loyal to collective decisions made by the governing body.
  • To recognise that all governors have the same rights and responsibilities unless particular responsibilities are conferred on them by the full governing body.
  • To understand that no governor can act alone except in exceptional circumstances prescribed in the regulations – the power of the governing body rests in it acting as a single body.

Governors must;

  • Respect confidentiality
  • Listen to and respect the views of others
  • Express their own views clearly and succinctly
  • Take their fair share of work/positions of responsibility.
  • Know, understand and work within the prescribed regulatory framework.
  • Report any evidence of fraud, corruption or misconduct to an appropriate person or Authority.

Governors should;

  • Prepare for meetings by reading papers beforehand.
  • Take responsibility for their own learning and development as a governor including attending training.
  • Attend meetings promptly, regularly, and for the full time.
