NURSTEED Community Primary School

‘Through kindness, teamwork and determination we thrive.’

Governors

The responsibility for the strategic management of the school is shared between the head teacher and the school governors.

 

Governing Bodies have a range of duties and powers including:

  • Helping to establish, with the head teacher, the aims and policies of the school

  • Advising on spending the school budget
  • Ensuring that the National Curriculum and Religious Education are provided
  • Selecting the head teacher
  • Appointing, promoting, supporting and disciplining staff
  • Providing outside advice, acting as a link between the local community and school.

The Governing Body has a general responsibility for strategic management of the school. It is not expected to take detailed decisions about the day to day running of the school – that is the function of the head teacher and other staff. The Governing Body is a group: individual members have no power, except when the whole Governing Body has delegated a specific power to an individual. The Governing Body meets at least termly.
