What Our Local Governing Body Do:

 

 

The three core functions of a governing body, as reflected in Ofsted’s inspection criteria are:

 

  • Setting vision, ethos and strategic direction, engaging stakeholders, and ensuring statutory duties are met;
  • Holding heads to account for teaching, achievement, behaviour and safety; challenging and strengthening leadership; contributing to school self-evaluation; and
  • Ensuring probity with effective management of devolved financial resources, including the Pupil Premium, to raise standards.
     

They are also responsible for specific actions such as ensuring that there is a procedure in place for handling complaints; approving the school budget; and appointing the headteacher.

 

Our Local Governing Body now met six times a year.
