Governance Structure

The Governing Body (also sometimes known as “the Trustees” or “the Board of Trustees” is the key strategic decision-making body of every academy. It is our role to set the academy’s strategic framework and to ensure all statutory duties are met.

The Governing Body ensures that the academy has a medium to long-term vision for its future. The governing body also ensures that there is a robust strategy in place for achieving its vision. This strategy addresses the fundamental questions of: where are we now, where do we want to be, and how are we going to get there.

The Governing Body has three main responsibiliites:

  1. Ensuring clarity of vision, ethos and strategic direction;
  2. Holding the Principal to account for the educational performance of the Academy and its students, and the performance management of staff; and
  3. Overseeing the financial performance of the Academy and making sure its money is well spent.

The Governing Body delegates some of its responsibilities to a group of Committees:

  • Audit and Risk
  • Finance and General Purposes (Pay and Performance Review is a sub-Committee)
  • Every Child Matters

Legal context: The Petchey Academy is a stand-alone sponsor academy. It is both a company limited by guarantee and an exempt charity.

Governors are therefore company directors and are required to comply with the Companies Act.

An exempt charity is one that is not regulated by, and cannot register with, the Charity Commission. Nevertheless, it is still a charity. Governors are Trustees – for the Academy, the terms are interchangeable - and are required to comply with all relevant charity legislation.
