The governing board is the school’s legally accountable body. It is accountable for the individual school to the local authority. It has a strategic oversight role. 

As set out in the Governance Handbook, all boards have three core functions:

The board may delegate functions to individual governors, the Headteacher (in certain circumstances) and committees of the board, but it remains accountable and is responsible for all decisions made. It is responsible for the general control and management of the administration of the school with headteachers operating within the autonomy, powers and functions delegated to them by the board. The board must act with integrity, objectivity and honesty and in the best interests of the school and should avoid conflicts of interest.

The board should make sure it does not get involved in the day-to-day running of the school (operational), which is the responsibility of the Headteacher. It must operate and make decisions in the best interests of the school and in line with its strategic priorities, including in relation to school finances. As the strategic lead for the school, it is vital that the board understands, and engages with the communities it serves.

The board, with advice from its Clerk, is also responsible for ensuring legal and regulatory compliance across a range of areas, including: 


In a maintained school the board must be made up of a minimum of seven governors including:

Governors are elected every four years.
