Instrument of Governance
Every Board of Governors must adhere in its form to that set out in its Instrument of Governance. The Instrument itself must conform to a set of statutory requirements, and is approved, in maintained schools, by the Local Authority on behalf of the Secretary of State for Education..
Periodically, Boards review their Instrument of Governance and propose any changes to the Local Authority. We are seeking to revise our Instrument because of our decision to structure the leadership of our two schools under one Federation Headteacher, Mary Ann Cooper, from 1st September 2019.
The Instrument of Governance presented in draft form below is set to be adopted by the Governing Board of Bushey Primary Education Federation at its meeting on Thursday 21st November 2019, and proposed thereafter to the Local Authority, Hertfordshire County Council, through the Governance Team at Herts for Learning.
