School Governing Boards

What are School Governing Boards?

School Governing Boards contribute to the work of the Learning Trust in ensuring high standards of achievement for all children and young people in the school by:

  • keeping the focus on school improvement
  • being a critical friend to the school, offering support and advice
  • providing assurances to the board about school performance and about the views of staff, parents and students
  • helping the school respond to the needs of parents and the community
  • making the school accountable to the public for what it does
  • working with the school on planning, developing policies and keeping these under review
  • working with the headteacher school staff to exercise the powers and responsibilities delegated by the board through the process of earned autonomy; and
  • not intervening in the day-to-day management of the school unless there are weaknesses and a suitable course of action has been approved by the Board of the Learning Trust
