The 3 Core Functions of Governance
 
Governance exists to provide strong strategic leadership to a school, ensuring accountability for its educational and financial performance.
 
The Governance Handbook assigns 3 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 performacne management of staff.
  • Overseeing the financial performance of the organisation and making sure its money is well spent.

The LAB's (Local Advisory Board) Governors meet at least once a term to contribute to the effective governance of the academy and report into the wider governance structure of Kernow Learning Multi-Academy Trust.
