Effective governance is crucial to the success of schools and academy trusts. The Governance Handbook sets out the key elements of effective governance as:

  • Strategic leadership that sets and champions vision, ethos and strategy;
  • Accountability that drives up educational standards and financial performance, and effectively manages risk;
  • People with the right skills, experience, qualities and capacity;
  • Structures which reinforce clearly defined roles and responsibilities;
  • Compliance with statutory and contractual requirements; and
  • Evaluation to monitor and improve the quality and impact of governance.
