Responsibilities of the Governing Body 

All school governors are volunteers. They are responsible for making the school's key strategic decisions. The governing body plays a vital role in ensuring school accountability. The governing body has a strong focus on 3 core strategic functions:


a. Ensuring clarity of vision, ethos and strategic direction;


b. Holding the headteacher to account for the educational performance of the school and its pupils, and the performance management of staff; and


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


The full governing body meets once a term, with the sub-committees meeting in between.  The main subcommittees are Operations and Development.
