The Role of A Governing Body
All schools in England have a Governing Body which is responsible for overseeing many of the strategic decisions of the school. A key role is to act as a ‘critical friend’: to support, to challenge, to ask questions, ultimately to represent the school community.
The Governing Body works in close partnership with the headteacher, staff and the Academy Trust. Whilst the headteacher is, of course, responsible for the day to day running of the school, the governors are involved with such things as staffing, curriculum, school buildings and finance.
It ensures the school functions well and maintains the proper range of academic and social objectives.
Main Governors’ meetings are held once a term including Full Governing Body meetings and Curriculum meetings which monitors and evaluates the standards of learning and teaching and the impact that the school makes on children’s achievement and attainment. The Governing Body monitors how the school ensures that we achieve our national and locally set targets and the targets that we set ourselves.
