The Governing Body meets at least once a term, but usually more often. Governors have Standing Orders to follow; these are regulations and guidelines as to how the Governors fulfill their duties.
The governors have very wide ranging responsibilities; oversight of the curriculum and pupil attainment, performance of staff, the health and safety of all those using the school, the school's finances- and more. In practice, they delegate much of this to the Headteacher on a day to day basis, but work with the Headteacher and staff to set the direction of the school and the policies it operates within.
