The Governors at Clyro Church in Wales Primary School welcome prospective pupils and parents. Governors make decisions about how the school is run. They help decide what is taught, they set standards of behaviour, they interview and appoint staff and they decide how the school budget is spent. Governors have legal responsibilities, duties and powers and can only act together, not as individuals. Governors receive training to help with their work. The Chair of the Governors may be contacted through the school.

As you can see from the list below, Governors are parents, teachers and other staff members from the school, representatives of the Church, the Local Authority and the community. Parent Governors must have a child at Clyro, they are elected by parents of the school and they serve, as do other Governors, for four years. Parent Governors bring the views of parents to the Governing body, but they speak and act as individuals supporting the school. They have equal status in the work of the Governing body and they have voting rights. They should be aware of encouraging parent interest and be actively involved in drawing other parents into the work of the school. Governors are encouraged to visit the school and take an interest in school life.
