Governance 2020-11-03T11:48:49+00:00


The purpose of governance is:

  1. To provide confident, strategic leadership and to create robust accountability, oversight and assurance for educational and financial performance.
  2.  All boards, no matter what type of schools or how many schools they govern, have three core functions:

• Ensuring clarity of vision, ethos and strategic direction;

• Holding executive leaders to account for the educational performance of the organisation and its pupils, and the performance management of staff; and

• Overseeing the financial performance of the organisation and making sure its money is well spent.

On 18 March 2016 the School Governance Constitution Regulations 2012 was amended so that all serving governors in maintained schools will be required to have an enhanced criminal records certificate (ECRC). This means that, by 1 September 2016, all serving governors must have an enhanced DBS and, from April 1 2016, governing bodies must have applied for an ECRC within 21 days of the election or appointment of a new governor.
