    Clerk to the Governing Body

The Governing Body is responsible for managing the affairs of Kendrick School which is a charitable company limited by guarantee and is responsible for approving the long term strategy of the school. The day to day running of the school is largely delegated to the Headteacher.
Governors at Kendrick School are directors of a company for the purposes of company law; and a charity trustee for the purposes of charity law. As a general principle, they have a general ‘fiduciary duty’ to the Governing Body. This means that they have a duty to act honestly, in good faith and in the best interests of the school at all times. They must use the powers granted to them for the purposes for which they were conferred (i.e. to run the school).

The Kendrick School Governing Body is made up of 3 committees – Learning & Teaching, Resourcing, and Performance & Reviewing.

The Full Governing Body meets 3 times a year which includes a whole day meeting and each Committee normally meets 6 times an academic year.
