Governance & Scheme of Delegation (Academies)
Within England, there are over 300,000 school/academy governors, who form the largest volunteer force in the country. The role 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:
- Discussing and setting the aims and objectives for the Academy
- Setting the required policies for achieving those aims and objectives
- Setting the required targets for achieving those aims and objectives
- Monitoring and evaluating 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.'
The Governing Body of Harris Academy Chafford Hundred
The Academy is a member of the Harris Federation. Ultimate responsibility for the Academy rests with the Board of Trustees of the Federation (Federation governance details and scheme of delegation can be found by clicking here) but much of the work of the Board is delegated to the Local Governing Body (the governors of the Academy). Some governors are appointed by the Federation whilst others are elected by parents or guardians of students at the Academy, or by staff. The details of the governors at Harris Academy Chafford Hundred are shown below.
- The Chair of the Academy Governing body at Harris Academy Chafford Hundred is Mr Tim Moore.
