The Governing Body
The Governing Body has a range of duties, responsibilities and powers, devolved to them under education legislation. The Governing Body adopted the Code of Conduct recommended by the National Governors’ Association in September 2015.The Governing Body is a corporate body and all its members are collectively responsible for the decisions it makes and for properly authorised decisions made on its behalf. Individual governors have no power except where the Governing Body specially delegates responsibility to them, or to a committee.
The Governance Regulations allow for delegation of most functions to committees. Given the range of duties to be carried out on a regular basis, some level of delegation to committees is inevitable if the Governing Body is to operate effectively. Our committee structure is explained below our governor photos here.
