The Role of the Governing Body
Governing Bodies are the strategic decision makers and vision setters for the school and their role is to ensure the best possible education for every child.
Their are three core functions:
1. Ensuring clarity of vision, ethos and strategic direction
2. Holding the head teacher to account for the educational performance of the school and its pupils, and the performance management of staff; and
3. Overseeing the financial performance of the school and making sure its money is well spent.

Governing Body Conduct
Governors should be mindful in exercising all their functions and must act with integrity, objectivity and honesty and at all times in the best interests of the school. They should be open about the decisions they make and the actions they take and be prepared to explain their decisions and actions to interested parties.
Holders of public office should be aware of and accept the seven principles of public life: Selflessness, integrity, objectivity, accountability, openness, honesty and leadership.

Who are the Governing Body?
The governing body is made up of staff, parents, local and other interested parties.
The effectiveness of the governors depends on the quality of the people and how they work together with the school leaders. Membership focuses on the skills and experience that are needed to be effective and contribute to the success of the school.

How do the governors work?
The full governing body meets four times each year and the Resource and Teaching and Learning Committees each meet three times each year. Working parties are set up as required to oversee specific projects and tasks.

The Governors have many roles and will:
Provide a strategic view of the school
Oversee financial performance
appoint and manage the head teacher
hold the head teacher to account for the performance of the school
ensure parents are consulted and informed as required
oversee admissions
set and approve the school budget
set challenging targets and monitor pupil progress towards them

Governors do not get involved in the day to day running of the school.
