This Handbook is for governors, headteachers and governing body clerks.   It provides three levels of progressively more detailed information:

 

•   Section 1 outlines the core role and functions of school governing bodies;  

•   Sections 2 to 8 summarise all of the specific legal duties on governing bodies –providing a first point of reference for those with a specific area of interest; and

•   Further reading signposted from within each section provides more detailed information on the legal duties of governing bodies and any supporting guidance or resources.
