The Board of Governors and the school Principal governs the school.
The key school body with responsibility for the functioning of the school in all its various aspects, including the academic, financial and legal requirements of the Ministry of Education (MoE) and of the school owner, will be the Board of Governors. The Board will operate in accordance with the rules and expectations of MoE and in accordance with the governing board structure adopted by UK.
“Governing bodies are the key strategic decisions making body in every school. It is their job to set the school’s strategic framework and ensure that it meets all of its statutory duties. This includes ensuring the school has a long-term strategic vision – including for the type of school that will offer them most opportunities. In the light of this vision, the governing body should agree the strategic priorities, aims and objectives for the school and sign off the policies, plans and targets for how to achieve them. They should check on progress and review regularly their strategic framework for the school in the light of that progress.” The School Inspection Handbook’ (UK Government, July 2013).

As such, its prime role is not only to act as the key strategic decision makers and vision setters, but also a key part of the overall system for school accountability, ensuring that resources are used well to give every child the best possible education.
