Governance

School Governors are people who want to make a positive contribution to children’s education, they are one of the largest volunteer forces in the country and have an important part to play in raising school standards.  Governors commit a lot of voluntary time and energy to their role.

The role of the Local Governing Board is absolutely key to the effectiveness of a school. Time and time again Ofsted (the national inspection body for schools) has noted that the most effective schools demonstrate effective leadership and management – including by the Local Governing Board.

The responsibilities of the Headley Park Local Governing Body are determined by the Cathedral Schools Trust Scheme of Delegation. The CST Governance arrangements are available below.

What do our Governors do?

The Governors at Headley Park work with “Cathedral School Trust” Trustees to provide strategic leadership and accountability in the school.

Governors are expected to devolve day to day operational decisions to the Headteacher and School Senior Leadership Team but strategically they will need to work with School staff to make the tough decisions about balancing resources and how to best spend funds to ensure all pupils achieve their best.

Individual Governors at Headley Park are members of the Local Governing Board, which has its activities detailed through the Trust Scheme of Delegation. Up to 2 Governors are elected by parent/carers whilst others are appointed to meet specific skills required to perform the three core roles below. However, Governors are not representatives of particular parts of the school community and are bound by the code of conduct to act in the overall best interests of the school.

a. Ensuring clarity of vision, ethos and strategic direction;
b. Holding the headteacher to account for the educational performance of the
school and its pupils; and
c. Overseeing the financial performance of the school and making sure its
money is well spent”.

Further information on the roles of governors can be found on the Ofsted and National Governors Association websites.
