Governors’ first line of accountability is to parents, the wider school and local community, and should have a strong focus on three core strategic functions:

  • 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; and

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

 “Governing bodies are the key strategic decision makers and vision setters in every school and academy. They are also a key part of the overall system for school accountability. Governing bodies have a vital role to play in driving up school and pupil performance and ensuring that resources are used well to give every child the best possible education. I want all governing bodies to focus ruthlessly on these core strategic functions, and avoid getting distracted by more peripheral matters.” - Lord Nash Parliamentary Under Secretary of State for Schools.
