Governing Body - Structure and Responsibilities

The day to day management of the TIG Federation is the responsibility of the Headteacher, but the Governing Body is responsible for overseeing all aspects of school life and has three statutory responsibilities:

  • Setting the school’s vision, ethos and strategic direction;
  • Holding the Headteacher to account for the educational performance of the school and its pupils; and
  • Overseeing the financial performance of the school and making sure its money is well spent.

All Governors sit on the Full Governing Body which meets once a term.  Governors also sit on at least one sub-committee, these being:

  • Impact of Teaching & Learning Committee: this committee regularly receives updates on curriculum and standards, reports on Senior Leadership reviews, and carries out policy review and approval.  It also deals with requests from staff, reviews professional development needs and discusses the Governor monitoring visits before reporting to the full Governing Body.
  • Impact of Resources Committee: this committee looks at budget monitoring, both for the current and next academic year.  Governors also review capital projects, approve payments, review letting charges, approve the budget management policy, review staff performance procedures and prepare, adopt, monitor and review all staffing policies.

The Instrument of Government for the TIG Federation states that the Governing Body should comprise 12 Governors:

  • Two parent governors
  • One Local Authority governor
  • One staff governor
  • Two foundation governors
  • Five co-opted governors
  • One Headteacher
