Full Governing Body

Diana Coman

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

Governing Board Diversity Data

St Mark’s is committed to having an active board that is diverse and inclusive and reflective of the community we serve. A diversity of thought, voices and perspectives is essential to good governance and the effective running of any organisation. We regularly collect diversity information from our governors and, depending on current data, can use this to:
  • target recruitment to address gaps in experience and diversity
  • develop and adapt board practices to ensure full participation
  • prioritise training and awareness-raising in identified areas
  • address potential ‘blind spots’ through seeking wider advice and perspectives on current and upcoming opportunities, challenges and risks

 However, as a small school, we are unable to publish this information as it would mean that individual members of our governing body are identifiable (schools must ensure that individuals cannot be identified through publication of data).
