Why do we have a Governing Body?

By law, every school must have a Governing Body. The size and type of school determines the number of Governors on the board. There are a number of duties and powers set by the Education Acts which the Governors adhere to.

These include:

  • Taking general responsibility for the conduct of the school.
  • Promoting high standards of educational achievement.
  • Setting Targets for Key Stages 1 and 2.
  • Setting staffing levels.
  • Budget Management.

How do the Governors of St Thomas of Canterbury make a difference?
