The Board of Governors is made up of people from the community who have business, management or education experience, alongside staff and parents.
The role of the governing board is absolutely key to the effectiveness of a school. School governors and trustees provide strategic leadership and accountability in schools. They appoint the principal and deputy principal. Governors/trustees hold the main responsibility for finance in schools, and it is governors and trustees who work with the principal to make the tough decisions about balancing resources.
Each individual governor is a member of a governing board, which is established in law as a corporate body. Individual governors may not act independently of the rest of the governing board and decisions are the joint responsibility of the governing board.
The role of the governing board is a strategic one with three key functions:
The Board is supported by a Resources Management Committee, which meets at least three times a year, to assist the decision making of the board of governors, by maintaining oversight of the Trust’s financial operation (including value for money), governance, risk management, internal control and external audit findings. It reports outcomes to the Governing Body including but not limited to external audit outcomes (annual year end audit, interim audit and Responsible Officer outcomes).
The Curriculum & Standards Committee meets at least 3 times a year to monitor and review school performance and educational standards in all curriculum areas.
