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 targets for achieving those aims and objectives.
  • Set the required policies for achieving those aims and objectives.
  • Monitor and evaluate the progress that the Academy is making towards its 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 and trustees are one of the largest volunteer forces in the country and have an important part to play in raising school standards. The role of the governing board is absolutely key to the effectiveness of a school. Time and time again Ofsted (the national inspection body for schools) has noted that the most effective schools demonstrate effective leadership and management - including by the governing board.

Strategic Leadership:

School governors  provide strategic leadership and accountability in schools and academies. It is governors who hold the main responsibility for finance in schools, and it is governors who work with the Principal to make the tough decisions about balancing resources.

The Academy Governing Body includes representation from Staff and Parents, as well as our Sponsor Governors. We are very fortunate to have an active Governing body who take a strategic role in ensuring the Academy provides the best possible provision for our learners.

The Chair of the Academy Governing Body at Harris Primary Academy Kent House is Mr Karl Hoods.

The Governor Responsible For Safeguarding at Harris Primary Academy Kent House is Mr Karl Hoods

The Clerk to the Governing Body is Mr Andy Friend

To contact our Chair of Governors, please contact the Academy via info@harrisprimarykenthouse.org.uk

If you wish to make a written submission, please kindly address your correspondence as follows: FAO Mr. Karl Hoods: Chair of Governors, Harris Primary Academy Kent House, High Street, London, SE20 7QR.
