What is a Governing Board?

The Governors are the vision setters and strategic decision makers for a school. They play a vital role in ensuring the best possible education that takes every child as far as their talents allow. Crucially, that means creating robust accountability, for leaders by using and being familiar with objective data on the performance of pupils, teachers and finances, to ask the right questions. It means ensuring resources are allocated to strategic priorities and safeguarding the highest standards of financial propriety – for example on executive pay and expenses and on related party transactions. It also means ensuring that schools prepare pupils for life and the workplace and implementing their Prevent duty and promoting fundamental British Values to protect them from the risks of extremism and radicalisation.

The Governing Board is made up of people with varied skill sets. If you would like to be a school governor please follow the link to the National Governance Association
