The Role of a Governor

A summary of ‘What a Governor does’ briefing sheet may help explain a Governor’s role and what they have committed to do throughout the year.

Governor Recruitment 

We are always interested in hearing from anyone in the local community who is interested in Governance. 

We invite applications from anyone in the local area so this could be a parent, or another family member, or someone you know who is interested in supporting the school.

If you, or someone you know, would like to talk to the Chair of Governors about becoming a Governor, please contact Donna Woodwards at

Governor Code of Conduct and Register of Business Interests

Every governor signs that they will comply with the code of conduct for governors.  Governors also register any business or financial interests on an annual basis.  For the academic year 2022/23 governors presented a nil return for any business or pecuniary interest, with governors who work in an organisation outside of the school declaring their post and the organisation they work for. 

Financial Transparency

As part of the financial transparency regulations the Department of Education have included two reporting requirements for maintained schools.


Local Authority (LA) maintained schools are required to publish a link to the schools financial benchmarking website, where the Consistent Financial Reporting (CFR) statement of income, expenditure and balances is published. For more information on Little Heath School’s financial status, please view our financial benchmarking page here

Individuals earning over £100,000

All LA maintained schools are required to publish on their websites the number of individuals (if any) earning over £100,000 in £10k bandings.

For the 23/24 financial year:

Salary range Number of employees
£100,000 - £109,999 0
£110,000 - £119,999 0
£120,000 - £130,000 1
