The Role of the Governing Body


As set out in the DfE Governance Handbook, the purpose of governance is ‘to provide confident strategic leadership and to create robust accountability, oversight and assurance for educational and financial performance.’

A governing body has the following 3 core functions:

  • Ensuring clarity of vision, ethos and strategic direction.
  • Holding executive leaders to account for the educational performance of the organisation and its pupils, and the performance management of staff; and
  • Overseeing the financial performance of the organisation and making sure money is well spent.

If you are interested in becoming a governor for our school, please contact the school office.
