Governance & Scheme of Delegation (Academies)

The Role of Governors

In England there are over 300,000 School/Academy Governors, who form the largest volunteer force in the country. Members of Academy Governing Bodies work collectively to perform a strategic role and carry out various key functions, including:

  •  Discuss and set the aims and objectives for the Academy;
  •  Ratify the required policies for achieving those aims and objectives;
  •  Approve/Agree 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.

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