Governors

The Role of the Governing Board:

The role of the governing board is essential to the effectiveness of a school with the Office for Standards in Education (Ofsted) noting that the most effective schools demonstrate effective leadership and management, which includes that of the governing board.

School governors provide strategic leadership and accountability in schools in which the role of the governing board is to support the headteacher and staff by positively promoting the work of the school, celebrating its achievements and working to ensure the best outcomes for pupils.

In the Governance Handbook, which can be found by following the link below or by searching: https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/governance-handbook, it is stated that all boards, regardless of the type of school or how many schools they govern, have three, fundamental, 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

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

Each individual governor and any associate member(s) form the governing board, which is established in law as a corporate body. This means that individual governors and associate members do not act independently of the rest of the governing board and therefore, all decisions are the joint responsibility of the governing board. As long as Local Authority maintained school governors and associate members act within the law, governors are protected

 

Governing Body & Standards Committee:
 
The Governing Body has a separate Standards Committee, further details of the structure of the committee can be found in the document below.
