Governors


Governors Statutory Responsibilities and Functions

In all types of schools, governing boards should have a strong focus on three core strategic functions:

a) Ensuring clarity of vision, ethos and strategic direction

b) Holding the executive leaders to account for the educational performance of the organisation and its pupils, the performance management of staff; and

c)  Overseeing the financial performance of the organisation and making sure its money is well spent. (Extract from Governors Handbook January 2017)
