The Foundation Body for Rosh Pinah is the Scopus Jewish Educational Trust.
As set out in The School Governance (Roles, Procedures and Allowances) (England) Regulations 2013, the functions of the Governing Body include the following core functions:
(a) ensuring that the vision, ethos and strategic direction of the school are clearly defined;
(b) ensuring that the Head Teacher performs his or her responsibilities for the educational performance of the school;
(c) ensuring the sound, proper and effective use of the school's financial resources.
The responsibility of the Governing Body is for overall policy. The day-to-day business of organising children's learning and of managing time, space, staff and resources is for the professional team led by the Head Teacher.
The full Governing Body meets termly and these meetings are clerked. There are also sub-committees which usually meet termly and they currently include (i) Admissions, (ii) Education, Ethos & Welfare, (iii) Business, Premises & Finance, (iv) Staffing & Performance, and (v) Strategic Planning. An individual Governor has been delegated responsibility for Special Educational Needs, welfare and safeguarding matters and small working groups of Governors have been established to oversee matters of governance, security, Jewish studies and finance.
