Governance and the Role of Governors

Bocking Primary is part of a Multi-Academy Trust known as Attain Academy Partnership. The MAT has its own Trust Board and Bocking Primary School has its own Local Governing Body, which is accountable to the Trust Board. The Trust Board has delegated to Bocking Primary School's Local Governing Body the responsibility of the day-to-day governance of the academy, for monitoring and evaluating progress and attainment and for supporting and challenging the leadership of the school to ensure high quality teaching, good behaviour and safeguarding of pupils.
The role of the Local Governing Body is a strategic one. It is responsible for promoting high standards and educational achievement. The Local Governing Body does not become involved in day-to-day management issues – that is the role of the Head of School.

To do this they attend meetings, visit the academy to monitor what is happening, consider a range of data and information about the achievements of children, seek the views of parents and children and receive reports from the Head of School and other staff including subject leaders. Governors are involved in discussing the priorities for future development. Governors attend training courses and receive information so that they are aware of developments in education and changes in the law which affect schools.

The key information for Governors can be found here.

The Local Governing Body meet every half term. Minutes from the meeting are available from the Trust’s Governance Professional on request:
