Main Roles:

 

  • Provide a strategic overview, by focusing on the key issues of raising standards of achievement, establishing high expectations and promoting effective teaching and learning.
  • Act as a Critical Friend, by providing the headteacher and staff with support and advice using members’ knowledge and experience.
  • Ensure Accountability, by questioning and openly discussing with the headteacher the school’s performance and other issues, whilst respecting both the professional roles of the headteacher and school staff and their responsibilities for the management of the school.

  How do we carry out our work?
The SGC meets at least once a term as a whole committee to review and discuss school business.

 What does the SGC not do?

The SGC does not act as the first line of complaints about any aspect of the school and its day to day work. The MOD Schools' complaints procedure should be referred to in these instances. 

Please note that SGC committees in MOD schools vary in their activities compared to Governing Bodies in the UK, where the governors have greater executive responsibility for the management of schools, including employing staff.
