Local Governance Board

Governing bodies are the strategic leaders of schools and have a vital role in ensuring that every child gets the best possible education.  

In schools, governing bodies should have a strong focus on 3 core strategic functions:

  • Ensuring Clarity of vision, ethos and strategic direction
  • Holding the Headteacher to account for educational performance of the school and its pupils; and
  • Overseeing the financial performance of the school and making sure its money is well spent.

The following table shows the members of our 2019 - 2020 Local Governance Board and their role and responsibility:
