Guidance for schools and academy trusts on governance structures and roles

The ESFA have published guidance for maintained schools and academy trusts on governance structures and the roles within them.

The guidance explains how governing boards of maintained schools and academy trusts are structured and provides descriptions of the roles and responsibilities within those structures. The guidance can be used as an introduction to the governance system across the education sector and to help with inductions for new volunteers.

The guidance is for:

  • governors and academy trustees
  • chairs of academy trusts
  • members of academy trusts
  • clerks
  • academy leaders

Baroness Berridge has written to all Academy Trust Members to encourage them to utilise their full powers in carrying out their duties.
