CORE FUNCTIONS OF THE GOVERNING BOARD

Governing Boards are expected to fulfil 3 core functions:

1.Setting Strategic Direction –

  • - clarity of vision and ethos
  • - engaging stakeholders
  • - meeting statutory duties

 

2.Creating Robust Accountability –

  • - accountability for teaching, achievement, behaviour and safety
  • - strengthening school leadership
  • - performance managing the headteacher
  • - contributing to school self-evaluation

 

3.Ensuring Financial Probity –

  • - solvency and effective financial management
  • - use of Pupil Premium and other resources to overcome barriers to learning

 

To enable us to meet these core functions the full governing body meets on a termly basis. We have two subcommittees: Achievement and Standards and Finance and Buildings. These committees have delegated powers to make decisions on behalf of the full governing board.
