You may find the following information useful.

Parent governors should provide a “parental viewpoint”, though they are “representative parents rather than representatives of parents”. To fulfil the role effectively, parent governors should:

  • Make themselves known to the parent body.
  • Try to attend in-service training (INSET) sessions.
  • Listen impartially to concerns raised by parents.
  • Guide parents about appropriate lines of action and procedures.
  • Present a balanced view of issues, representing different sections of the community.
  • Attend Governing Body meetings.

It is important for parent governors to establish a rapport with other parents. However, they should not become personally involved in any individual concerns, as this may jeopardise complaint and appeal procedures.
