The Role of Governors

 

The Governance Handbook provides information about the role and legal duties of governing boards in maintained schools and academies (including free schools).

 

The Handbook can be downloaded from the Department for Education (DfE) website www.gov.uk

 

The three core functions of governors are:

 

•         Ensuring clarity of vision, ethos and strategic direction;

•         Holding the Head teacher to account for the educational performance of the school and its pupils

           and the performance management of staff; and

•         Overseeing the financial performance of the school and making sure its money is well spent

 

Governors have particular responsibilities with regard to safeguarding.
