In England and Wales, state education is provided through the operation of a partnership between; central and local government, the Diocese (for faith schools), other interested parties, school governing bodies, headteachers and school staff. The law requires schools to have a governing body representative of these stakeholders who will, collectively, oversee the strategic running of the school.
