ENL UTC board of governors.

The role of the governing body.

The ENL UTC’s board of governors is made up of individuals from the community who have business, management or education experience, alongside staff and parents.

The role of the governing board is absolutely key to the effectiveness of a school. School governors and trustees provide strategic leadership and accountability in schools. They appoint the principal and deputy principal. Governors/trustees hold the main responsibility for finance in schools, and it is governors and trustees who work with the principal to make the tough decisions about balancing resources.

Each individual governor is a member of a governing board, which is established in law as a corporate body. Individual governors may not act independently of the rest of the governing board and decisions are the joint responsibility of the governing board.
