Governors are there to set the strategic direction of the federation and to quality assure the work of school leaders. They meet termly as a full Governing Body but play a very active role outside of these meetings. The other subcommittees that meet termly are:

  • Finance & General Purposes
  • Strategic Development
  • Curriculum, Standards, Quality

There are also Local Advisory Boards that oversee Headway and Community Sport (Sports Village and Get Ahead) - they also meet termly with membership consisting of one Governor plus specialist volunteers in the relevant field.
