Central Office

















Governance & Scheme of Delegation (Academies)

Within England, there are over 300,000 School/Academy Governors, who form one of the largest volunteer forces in the country.

The roles of individual Governors, and subsequently members of a Governing Body, is to 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 it’s set aims and objectives.

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