The Role of the Governing Body
The governing body is responsible for the conduct of its school, and must promote high standards of educational achievement at the school. Its key roles are:
- To ensure clarity of vision, ethos and strategic direction
- To hold the Headteacher to account for the educational performance of the school and its pupils, and the performance management of staff
- To oversee the financial performance of the school and make sure its money is well spent
In order to do this, governors need to gain knowledge of how the school operates through training, attending meetings, and by getting to know their school community , for example through a small number of visits to the school during the school day.
