Welcome to our Governors’ section 

The Governing Board provides strategic leadership and accountability in schools. 

It has three key functions:

• Overseeing the financial performance of the school and making sure its money is well spent

• Holding the headteacher to account for the educational performance of the school and its pupils

• Ensuring clarity of vision, ethos and strategic direction

Governors set the aims and objectives for the school and set the policies and targets for achieving those aims and objectives. They monitor and evaluate the progress the school is making and act as a source of challenge and support to the headteacher.

In action, this means:

• Develop the school’s vision and strategy

• Set a culture of high educational standards, which promotes staff and pupil wellbeing

• Ensure the school follows the National Curriculum, and that all pupils, including those with special educational needs (SEN), can access the curriculum

• Monitor provision for pupils with SEN

• Monitor the school’s educational performance, using a range of data sources

• Ensure stakeholders (parents, pupils, staff, the local community) are informed and consulted as appropriate

• Approve the school budget

• Monitor and evaluate the school’s financial performance

• Approve and review school policies, and hold staff to account for their implementation

• Ensure the school is compliant with legal requirements, including that all statutory policies and documents are in place

• Carry out the appointment and performance management of the headteacher

• Monitor and evaluate the school’s staffing structure(s)

• Monitor health and safety in the school

• Work in co-operation with the local authority, having regard to any guidance it issues
