Find out about the Council’s service in this areaThe Work of the Governing Body

The Department for Education (DfE) is responsible for the provision of statutory procedures and regulations that govern the work of Governing Bodies.

See the DfE's list of statutory guidance publications for schools and local authorities.

Read the DfE's advice on statutory policies for schools.

In addition to those publications there are many resources and support tools available for governors, both nationally and locally in Waltham Forest, to support governing bodies to be effective in their work.

This high level of support is necessary given the level of responsibility that governors and governing bodies have in shaping the strategic direction of the school whilst holding school leaders to account for the school's performance.

WF Traded Services has provided a wide array of guidance and resources for governing bodies to support them in ensuring robust effectiveness and accountability.
