The Governing Body is a team of people who work in partnership with the Headteacher and ‘govern the school’.  They appoint the Headteacher, set and monitor policies, decide how the school should spend its budget, foster good relations with parents, the local community and others, maintain and improve the school premises and make sure the appropriate Curriculum is provided, amongst other duties.  They work as a team and take collective decisions, establishing committees and working parties as they consider appropriate.

Part of a Governors role is to challenge the Head.

The three main types of challenge are as follows:-

  1. Ensuring clarity of vision, ethos and strategic direction
  2. Holding the Headteacher to account for the educational performance of the school and its pupils
  3. Overseeing the financial performance of the school and making sure it’s money well spent
