    Ysgol Pen Coch Governing Body

    School governors are members of their school's governing body which is a "corporate body". A corporate body has a legal identity that is separate from its members and as a result, individual governors are generally protected from personal liability as a result of the governing body's decisions and actions, provided they act honestly, reasonably and in good faith.Individual governors have no power or right to act on behalf of the governing body except where the whole governing body has delegated a specific function to that individual or where regulations specify that a function is to be exercised in a particular way.

    School governors are drawn from different parts of the community, such as parents, the Staff, the Local  Authority, the Community and other groups. This helps to ensure that the governing body has sufficient diversity of views and experience but does not mean that governors of a particular category "represent" that group on the governing body. For example, Parent Governors do not act as a representative of the parents at the school and do not report back to them.

    Responsibilities

    The Governing Body has the collective and legal responsibility for the overall direction of the school and its strategic management. This includes the effective financial management of the school’s delegated budget and the responsibility for ensuring that the school’s financial resources are utilised in support of improving learner outcomes in the most effective and efficient way. 

     

    The Governor Guide aims to provide Governors with information and guidance to assist with this important role and gives an overview of school finance, Governors' responsibilities, what should be happening and when, as well as useful points of reference.  You can view the Governor Guide by clicking the link below:

    The governing body has considerable discretion as to how to discharge its responsibilities but is required to constitute itself in line with the regulations and to appoint a chair and vice chair. The governing body may delegate certain of its responsibilities to certain governors or committees of governors.
