The Role of the Governing Body

The Governing Body has three primary areas of responsibility:


1. Strategic Direction

It sets the vision, ethos and strategic direction for the school. The Head Teacher’s input is also key to this role, where we look at how the school is performing, where and into what we would like to see it develop, and consider what we need to do to ensure that those aspirations are achieved.

 

2. Critical friend

In addition, governors hold the Head Teacher to account for the educational performance of the school and the performance management of staff. This is the 'critical friend' role, which runs through Governing Body meetings, committees and other interactions.

 

3. Financial Management

Overseeing the financial performance of the school and making sure that its money is well spent.

In order to maximise efficiency, our Governing Body allocates many specific duties to 3 committees:
- Curriculum & Standards
- Finance & Staffing
- School Environment
These committees hold regular meetings through the year and report back to the full Governing Body meetings.

 

Individual governors are also responsible for supporting various aspects of the curriculum and perform Governor Visits on a regular basis. These Governor Visit findings are also reported to committees and the full Governing Body.
