What is the Governing Body for?

School governors are responsible for:

  • overall strategic direction, with regard to educational achievement and curriculum, financial and people management including staffing structures, and the management of the school site
  • agreeing the annual budget and monitoring expenditure
  • creating many of the school’s policies and procedures and ensuring they are implemented.

The Governing Body is not responsible for the day-to-day running of the school. However, it acts as a ‘critical friend’ and has an important ‘challenge and support’ role.
