Frequently Asked Questions

Here are some Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) about the governing body. We are lucky to have a strong and committed governing body who oversee the whole Federation. However, many of our governers have come to the end of their term of office and we are undergoing a period of transition. If you are interested in becoming a member of our governing body or have further questions, please call in to school and see one of governor representatives.

What is the role of the governing body?

As Defined by the DfE-

The governing body provides non-executive leadership. Its role is to operate as a board akin to the board of trustees of a charity, or the board of directors of a company. In all matters, the ‘board of governors’ should operate at a strategic level, leaving the headteacher and senior school leaders responsible and accountable to it for the operational day-to-day running of the school. To emphasise this point, this advice will refer to the governing body as ‘the board’.

How do I join the governing body?

If there is a vacancy the school will send out notification of this; following on from this people who are interested must be nominated for the position. Further details will be shared for different roles within the governing body.
