The Governing Body
Government Regulations require all Primary Schools in England to appoint a Governing Body to oversee the delivery of education and ensure its quality.
The Governing Body has three core duties:
● Ensuring clarity of vision, ethos and strategic direction
● Holding the Headteacher to account for the educational performance of the school and its pupils, and the effective and efficient performance management of staff
● Overseeing the financial performance of the school and making sure money is well spent
School governors take an individual interest in the school and use their skills and experience both to check on how things are being done and to support the staff where appropriate.
Governors are allocated specific roles related both to the school curriculum and wider responsibilities such as safeguarding or financial management.
The Governing Body meets in full twice a term and at other times where necessary.
