The Governing Body are the strategic leaders of our school and have a vital role to play in making sure every child gets the best possible education. They have responsibility for raising school standards with a strong focus on three core strategic functions:
1. ensuring clarity of vision, ethos and strategic direction
2. holding the headteacher to account for the educational performance of the school and its pupils
3. overseeing the financial performance of the school and making sure its money is spent well.
These functions are reflected in regulations for maintained schools that came into force in September 2013 and in the criteria Ofsted Inspectors use to judge the effectiveness of governance in both maintained schools and academies.
