What do governing bodies decide?

School governors and the head teacher are responsible for the overall educational and financial health of the school and will make decisions about:

  • setting and monitoring the school’s aims and policies;

  • agreeing and monitoring the school’s budget;

  • appointing staff, including the head teacher; and

  • ensuring the school premises are maintained and improving the school’s environment.


Governors make sure that:
