Governors Role

The role of the Governing Body can be contrasted with that of the Headteacher. In general terms, the Headteacher is responsible for the day to day running of the school. The respective roles and responsibilities of the Governing Body and the Headteacher is set out more fully in the School Government (Terms of Reference) (Wales) Regulations 2000. Those Regulations provide amongst other things that the Governing Body must exercise its functions with a view to fulfilling a broadly strategic role in the running of the school. The Regulations provide that the Headteacher is responsible for the internal organisation, management and control of the school, and the implementation of the strategic framework established by the Governing Body.
