About the Governing Body
Woodborough Woods is a voluntary aided foundation school, within the Diocese of Southwell & Nottingham, which ensures that the religious character of the school is maintained. The school is funded through the Local Authority, although the governing body must pay at least 10% of the costs of any capital work.
The governing body is the school’s legally accountable body and, in the case of a voluntary aided school, is the admissions authority and employer of the staff. The governing body has three key functions:
- ensuring clarity of vision, ethos and strategic direction;
- holding school leaders to account for the educational performance of pupils as well as the effective and efficient performance management of staff;
- and overseeing the financial performance of the school(s) and making sure that its money is well spent.
