The Academy Governor

The new edition of this book, updated in August 2017, explains the roles and responsibilities of trustee and governor of all types of academy. Always highly practical, it gives guidance on the principles of governing academies and on each of the governance functions. Throughout, it explains where there are variations in practice between stand-alone academies and multi-academy trusts and explores the differences in role between trustees and members of local governing bodies.

Starting with the characteristics of good governance and the special features of governing an academy, it clarifies what governors of academies have to do in respect of:

• raising school standards
• ensuring sound financial practice
• employing and overseeing the management of staff
• developing the curriculum
• ensuring compliance with statutory responsibilities
• managing the clerking of their own business
• working with others, in a chain or elsewhere.

A reference section at the end details where to go for support, further information, or legal clarification.

The book will be equally valuable to those new to governance, those coming new to an academy having previously governed a maintained school, and experienced academy governors looking for specific information.
