Governance & Scheme of Delegation (Academies)

The roles of individual Governors, and subsequently members of a Governing Body, work collectively to perform a strategic role and carry out key functions such as:

  • Discuss and set the aims and objectives for the Academy.
  • Set the required policies for achieving those aims and objectives.
  • Set the required targets for achieving those aims and objectives.
  • Monitor and evaluate the progress that the Academy is making towards its set aims and objectives.

Finally the role of role of the Academy Governor is to be a source of challenge and support to the Executive Principal, i.e. a 'critical friend.'

The Governors are committed to ensuring that students achieve their potential and are well-equipped for life after school. We believe that every child can do well, and as staff work hard to make sure this happens, we expect our students to do the same.

The Governors’ primary role is to support the Executive Principal and staff; to work with the Executive team to agree the short and long term strategy for the Academy; to assist in ensuring they have the necessary resources and review the progress of the Academy towards achieving its aim.

The Academy is a member of the Harris Federation. Ultimate responsibility for the Academy rests with the Board of Trustees of the Federation (Federation governance details and scheme of delegation can be found in the page document below) but much of the work of the Board is delegated to the Local Governing Body (the Governors of the Academy).

Some Governors are appointed by the Federation whilst others are elected by parents or guardians of students at the Academy or by staff.

The current details of the Governors are shown below. Contact details for the Governing Body, including the Chair can be found by clicking here.
