The three critical functions of the Governing Body are to provide a strategic overview, to act as a critical friend and to ensure accountability.
School governors are drawn from different parts of the community and can be parents and staff or from the Local Authority, the community and other groups. This helps ensure the governing body has sufficient diversity of views and experience.
The governing body has a range of duties and powers and a general responsibility for the conduct of the school with a view to promoting high standards of educational achievement.
Its responsibilities include, but are not limited to:
In a Church of England School the Governing Body is comprised of Foundation Governors who are appointed by different arms of the church, Elected Parent Governors, Elected Staff Governor, Local Authority Governor, and Head Teacher. It is possible for the Governing Body to co-opt other people onto its membership.
