Governance & Scheme of Delegation (Academies)
The Role of Governor
Within England, there are over 300,000 School/Academy Governors, who form the largest volunteer force in the country.
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 it’s set aims and objectives.
Finally the role of role of the Academy Governor is to be a source of challenge and support to the Principal, i.e. a 'critical friend.' Governors drive and monitor the progress towards the Academy Improvement Plan, a copy of which is included in the documents list for this page.
