All schools in England have a Governing Body which is responsible for overseeing many of the strategic decisions of the school. A key role is to act as a ‘critical friend’: to support, to challenge, to ask questions, ultimately to represent the school community.
The Governing Body works in close partnership with the Head Teacher, staff and the Local Authority. Whilst the Head Teacher is responsible for the day to day running of the school, the governors are involved with such things as staffing, curriculum, school buildings and finance.
Membership of the Governing Body includes parents, teaching staff and representatives from the local community and the Local Authority. The Full Governing Body and two main sub-committees meet at least once each term.
