Full Governing Body

Mark Scott

The purpose of Governing Bodies is to “conduct the school with a view to promoting high standards of educational achievement at the school” (Education Act, 2002).

Governing bodies focus on three 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 well spent
