School governors have a legal responsibility to promote high standards of educational achievement. Governing bodies have three key roles: setting strategic direction, ensuring accountability and monitoring and evaluation.  The Education Acts give governors key principles, in regulations and guidance.  Governors are not involved in the day-to-day management of the school.  One Governing Body has oversight of both schools. 

You may find this link useful which explains what being a governor involves.

If you wish to contact any governor directly, you can do so via the school email (Mark it FAO and the Name of the Governor) or you can leave a letter at the office and it will be forwarded on.
