Governing Body

Function and purpose

School governors have a legal responsibility to conduct the school with a view to promoting high standards of educational achievement. Governing bodies have three key roles: setting strategic direction, ensuring accountability and monitoring and evaluation.

Governing body responsibilities include

•  Setting strategic direction, objectives, targets and policies

•  Reviewing progress against the budget, plans and targets.

•  Approving the school budget.

•  Acting as a critical friend to the Headteacher by providing support and challenge.

•  Appointing a Headteacher.

Who are represented on the governing body?

Governing bodies are made up of key stakeholders:

•  Parents - parent governors are elected by other parents at the school

•  Staff, including the head teacher - staff i.e. teaching and other staff, governors are elected by the school staff.

•  The community - the governing body appoints community governors i.e. members of the community.

•  The Local Authority (LA) - the LA appoints one or more local education authority (LEA) governors.
