The purpose of governance is to provide confident and strong strategic leadership which leads to robust accountability, oversight and assurance for educational and financial performance. The Board ensures it manages the three core functions of governance as described in the DfE ‘Governance Handbook’: 

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