The Governing Body works in partnership with the school. It oversees and approves such policies as special needs, charging for school trips, sex education and Home School Agreements.
It is responsible for ensuring the National Curriculum is taught and monitored.
The Governing Body works with the Head Teacher to determine how the school budget should be spent. This is linked to the School Improvement Plan.
Under Local Management of Schools, schools have control of their own budget. The Governing Body is responsible for running the school within that budget which includes spending on salaries, educational resources, services and building maintenance.
