Becontree Primary School Governing Body

Our Governing Body is made up of staff, parents, community representatives and a Local Authority elected representative.

Please see our Governors under the Meet the Team section.

Three Core Functions of the Governing Body


School governance regulations and the Department for Education's (DFE) Governance Handbook identify three core functions for governing bodies:


1. ensuring clarity of vision, ethos and strategic direction;


2. holding leaders to account for the educational performance of the organisation and its pupils, and the performance management of staff;


3. overseeing the financial performance of the organisation and making sure its money is spent well.


The documents below provide detailed evidence of the work of the Governing Body at Becontree Primary School.
