Governing Board

At King’s Norton Boys’ School our Governing Board has a broad balance of diversity, skills, knowledge and experience. This means we are able to make a valuable contribution to all of our students’ education, opportunities and futures, by providing strategic leadership and accountability in the school, which is underpinned by our three core functions:

  • overseeing the financial performance of the school and ensuring its money is well spent
  • holding the headteacher to account for the educational performance of the school and its students
  • ensuring clarity of vision, ethos and strategic direction.

Our Full Governing Board meets twelve times per year, with a separate finance committee which meets a minimum of 4 times a year to provide a thorough examination of the school finances underpinning the Governing Boards core fiduciary responsibility. Other statutory roles are undertaken by link governors.
