The governing body monitors the school in light of OFSTED’s four key performance criteria, reviews performance data, reviews and updates school policies (about 45 in total) and carries out classroom visits to develop members’ knowledge and understanding of the school. It meets six times a year, with additional meetings with the senior leadership team to discuss data and targets as appropriate.
Much of the work is undertaken by committees.
