This session will also cover governors' accountability during school closure and the essentials to focus on.
Core Function 3 - Overseeing the Financial Performance of the School explores how governors ensure public money is well spent.
You will learn about governors' statutory duties and how to engage effectively with parents, pupils and staff.
