What does the Governing Body do?

The Governing Body provides strategic leadership and holds the school to account for overall performance.  The Governing Body appoints teaching and support staff, is responsible for the site and prioritises and monitors expenditure of school finances.  They also will take part in the appointment of the Headteacher, and will appoint Deputy or Assistant Headteachers.

Amongst other things, the Governing Body will agree:

  • priorities for development each year

  • the annual financial budget across different areas of expenditure

They will also:

  • confirm the curriculum on offer

  • receive reports on performance, and act as a critical friend. This will include:

    • the standards of teaching

    • students’ performance in public examinations

    • The quality of provision in the school for different subjects, different groups of students, and those with particular needs

The Governing Body will also oversee the condition and safety of the site, developments in this area, and also the financial health of the school.
