Governance

THE ROLE OF THE GOVERNING BODY

The governing body provides non-executive leadership. Its role is to operate as a board akin to the board of trustees of a charity, or the board of directors of a company. In all matters, the ‘board of governors’ operates at a strategic level, leaving the headteacher responsible and accountable to it for the operational day-to-day running of the school.
