A School Board is a legally formed body that, in partnership with the Principal, is given powers to set and monitor the key directions of a school. It is the major governing body of the school and oversees the school’s performance. This means taking part in the shaping and monitoring of the school’s objectives, priorities and general policy directions. In addition, other functions are specified in the legislation.
The Board does not have a role in the school management. This is the responsibility of the Principal and involves educational leadership and the effective day-to-day administration, supervision and control of the school and its staff.
Meetings are held twice per term. Board members may be in office for a three year term but can be reinstated for a further term upon nomination.
