The role of the Governing Board

North Molton Primary School’s governing body exists to provide strategic direction and an oversight of the leadership, management and operation of the school. The governors help to drive the School's vision for education and take a strategic view of its activities, bringing experience and expertise from other walks of life into the school.

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

• Ensuring clarity of vision, ethos and strategic direction;

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

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