The purpose of having a governing body is to:
help the school to set high standards by planning for the school's future and setting targets for school improvement
keep the pressure up on school improvement
be a critical friend to the school, offering support and advice
help the school respond to the needs of parents and the community
make the school accountable to the public for what it does
work with the school on planning, developing policies and keeping the school under review
exercise its responsibilities and powers in partnership with the head teacher and staff
not intervene in the day-to-day management of the school unless there are weaknesses in the school, when it then has a duty to take action.
