Summary from the statutory guidance for schools' governing bodies...
The role of the governing body:
The governing body must ensure that the designated teacher ( for Children Looked After) undertakes appropriate training.
As a minimum governors must consider an annual report from the designated teacher which contains the information described in section 2.10 of the guidance1.
The governing body and school leadership team should consider the report and act on any issues it raises so as to support the designated teacher and maximise the impact of the role.
