Structure and Remit of Governing Body and Committees

GOVERNANCE STRUCTURE ACROSS MARTENSCROFT NURSERY SCHOOL & CHILDREN’S CENTRE

The role of the governing body is strategic. The Department for Education’s Governance Handbook identifies three core functions for governing bodies:

  • ensuring clarity of vision, ethos and strategic direction
  • holding the head teacher to account for the educational performance of the school and its pupils, and the performance management of staff
  • overseeing the financial performance of the school and making sure its money is well spent

Members of the governing body are appointed based on their skills in order to contribute to effective governance and the success of the school.
