Raysfield Infant School and Raysfield Junior School are together under one Governing board to form a Federation. The Federated Governing Board are the accountable body for both schools, and the sets the strategic direction and is responsible for making decisions about how the work of the school is run. All governing boards have certain obligations, legal duties, powers and responsibilities.

The Full Governing Board meets at least six times a year but in addition to these meetings, governors also sit on three sub-committees; Childrens’, Resources, and Data Monitoring, that report to the Full Governing Board, and have individual responsibilities
