What is a governing body?
The Government requires that each school has a governing body. As a Voluntary Aided school our team is made up of the various stakeholders that the school serves – the church, parents, local authority, and staff. Governors are either elected or appointed, for example parent governors are elected from the parent body, and foundation governors are nominated by the church.
What does a governing body do?
The governing body works in partnership with the headteacher, staff, parents and the LA to raise standards of achievement in the school, led by the Chair of Governors. The main functions of the governing body are to:
Provide a strategic view
Act as a critical friend
The governing body has wide-ranging responsibilities and works with the Headteacher and staff to:
Agree the aims and values of the school
Make decisions on the budget and approve the School Improvement Plan
Ensure that the National Curriculum is taught
Monitor and review the school’s progress
Ensure that individual pupil’s needs are met, including special needs
Be involved in the recruitment of staff
Provide information about school for parents
Establish and maintain positive links with the church and the local community
