Roles and Responsibility

The role of the Governing Body is a strategic one, its key functions are to:


  • Ensure clarity of vision, ethos and strategic direction
  • Hold the Headteacher to account for the educational performance of the school and its pupils
  • Oversee the financial performance of the school and make sure its money is well spent. 



Governing Bodies must appoint a Clerk who is responsible for administrative work such as taking and distributing minutes of meetings, giving advice on procedures and ensuring that Governors are aware of their statutory responsibilities.
