Governance of the Academy Trust

When a school becomes an Academy the Secretary of State for Education issues an academy order and a trust is then set up which in effect has a contract to run the academy for the government. Academy trusts have almost complete flexibility to shape their governance arrangements and design the constitution of their governing bodies as they see fit. An academy trust is a charitable company limited by guarantee. All academy trusts have two layers of governance: As Green Lane is a single school academy converter the members and the trustees are all directors and form the Governing Body – and are referred to as Governors. Their three core strategic governance functions are: The main role for governors is to support the Head Teachers and staff – the phrase often used to describe this role is ‘a critical friend’ – helping them to set and reach targets and to strive for excellence across the whole spectrum of academy life. The two key documents used for this are the Academy Improvement Plan (AIP) and the Summary Self Evaluation Form (SEF). The AIP sets out our strategic plan for the school, with targets that everyone works towards and the SEF sets out how well the school is doing and where we aim to make improvements. Governors also fulfil a range of legal duties including: The full Governing Body meets once every term. At this meeting, the Head Teachers and other Leaders report to all governors about learning, progress, staffing, financial and premises matters. There are two other committees which meet termly: The Finance Audit and Resources Committee and The Raising Achievement and Pupil Wellbeing Committee.
