Robert Ogden School governors (also known as the local governance body or 'LGB') is made up of representatives from the local area, parents and staff covering a number of governor roles. School governors have a key role in setting the strategic direction of a school, ensuring the accountability of teachers and staff, and thinking critically about the welfare of a school.

monitor the wellbeing and safety of the pupils
monitor the educational achievement of pupils
represent the school to the local community, including the business community
support the development of the school as and when opportunities arise.
