This is reflected in the law, which states that the purpose of maintained school governing bodies is to ‘conduct the school with a view to promoting high standards of educational achievement at the school’
Our governing body has a strong focus on three core strategic functions:
Ensuring financial resources are well spent.
From Sep 2020 there were no separate committee meetings. The full governing body meeting meets termly.
