The purpose of governance is to provide confident and strong, strategic leadership resulting in robust accountability, oversight and assurance for educational and financial performance.

All governance boards, no matter what type of school or how many schools they govern, have three core functions:

• Ensuring clarity of vision, ethos and strategic direction; 

• Holding leaders to account for the educational performance of the organisation and its pupils, and the effective and efficient performance management of staff; and 

• Overseeing the financial performance of the organisation and making sure its money is well spent.

Structure of the Local Governing Committee

The Local Governing Committee (LGC) is made up from the various stakeholder groups that the school serves.  

The size and composition of the LGC is determined by the school’s ‘Instrument of Government’. This also determines the term of office served by the governors.
