Chetwynd Primary Academy Governing Body

'Governing bodies are the key strategic decision makers and vision setters in every school and academy. They are also a key part of the overall system for school accountability. Governing bodies have a vital role to play in driving up school and pupil performance and ensuring that resources are used well to give every child the best possible education' Lord Nash – Governors Handbook September 2014


Core Function of the Governing Body

The Governing Body are the strategic leaders of our school and have a vital role to play in making sure every child gets the best possible education and therefore has a strong focus on three core strategic functions:
a) Ensuring clarity of vision, ethos and strategic direction;
b) Holding the principal to account for the educational performance of the school and its pupils, and the performance management of staff;
c) Overseeing the financial performance of the school and making sure its money is well spent.


There are three types of Governor within an academy school. They are:
a) Community Governor - appointed by the governing body. They may represent the local community, local business or have the skills that the governing body require.
b) Parent Governor - elected by parents at the School/Academy.
c) Staff Governor - elected by staff within the School/Academy
