The Governing Body

The Governing Body

The Governing Body meets as one team, six times per year.

The purpose of governance is to provide confident, strategic leadership and to create robust accountability, oversight and assurance for educational and financial performance.


The Governing Body has three strategic core functions:

  • Ensuring clarity of vision, ethos and strategic direction;

  • Holding executive leaders to account for the educational performance of the organisation and its pupils, and the performance management of staff; and

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

The Governing Board delegates some of its work to working groups and monitoring pairs/individuals.The full terms of reference can be found here.
