Being a school Governor is interesting, worthwhile and rewarding. An effective Governor is clear about their role and responsibilities.

Governors do not need educational expertise but do need to be committed to Crosshill School, willing to ask questions, to both challenge and support the Headteacher. They also need to be able to devote the time necessary to work as an enthusiastic member of the Governing Body team, attend meetings, and get involved in the life of the school.

Crosshill values the contribution from Governors from all walks of life, bringing their unique life experiences and skills which can be utilised to support school improvement. New Governors will be supported by other Governors on the Governing Body as well as Blackburn with Darwen Local Authority.

The Governing Body is made up of representatives of parents, staff, the community, sponsor and the Local Authority. The Headteacher is entitled to attend all meetings of the Governing Body, and also its committees. Normally a Governing Body will meet every term, with between two to three committees doing the more detailed work, feeding into the main meeting.
