GRAHAM SCHOOL IS PART OF

Governance

Governance

A Multi-Academy Trust (MAT) is a legal entity accountable for the running of the organisation and all the academies within it. The MAT is a charitable company limited by guarantee, and has multiple layers of governance: the Members, the Board of Trustees and Board Committees, which include a Local Governing Committee for each academy within the MAT.

The Local Governing Committee serves as a sub-committee of the Hope Learning Trust York Board of Trustees, and their responsibilities are set out within the Trust’s Scheme of Delegation. If required, the Board can either delegate more powers to the Local Governing Committee or withdraw powers in exceptional situations. Governors are not involved in the operational running of the academy; the daily management of the academy is the responsibility of the Principal.  All decisions are made as a group; governors are there as a corporate body responsible for the governance of the academy and not to represent their own interests or the interest of others.

What does the Local Governing Committee do?

Local governors have three central duties:

            i) setting the vision of the local academy
            ii) holding the Headteacher/Principal to account
            iii) and ensuring the academy’s financial management is to the highest possible standard.

Governors carry out their tasks in a number of different ways, through regular meetings and visits to the academy. Meetings are held at least once a term.

For the 2020 – 21 academic year, the meeting dates are: 

  • 29 September 2020 
  • 1 December 2020 
  • 26 January 2021
  • 20 April 2021
  • 15 June 2021

The Local Governing Committee provides the school with a wide range of skills and experience which supports the Senior Leadership team in vital decisions that enhance the academy’s environment, curriculum and delivery of the best educational experience possible.
