The Core Functions of the Governing Board

School governance is strategic not operational.  The day-to-day running of the school is the responsibility of the headteacher.  The headteacher fulfils this responsibility through implementing a strategic plan agreed with the governing board.

School governance regulations and the DfE Governance Handbook identify three core functions for governing boards:

  1. ensuring clarity of vision, ethos and strategic direction
  2. holding executive leaders to account for the educational performance of the organistaion and its pupils, and the performance management of staff
  3. overseeing the financial performance of the organisation and making sure its money is well spent
