    Chains of Academies Governance Models Chains of Academies Governance Models Presentation Transcript

    • Chains of AcademiesGovernance Models
      James Hargrave
      Chair of GovernorsStradbroke Primary Schoov1.2a 24 March 2011
    • Models for Governance
      Governance and Management models are independent and a given governance model doesn’t mean a particular management structure
      There are three main governance models suggested by the DfE for chains of academies
      Multi-academy Trust
      Umbrella Trust
      Informal collaboration
      The information about these models was all provided by the DfE
    • Chains of Academies
      Any school can join a chain irrespective of their own Ofsted rating
      Each Governing Body needs to pass a separate resolution
      Needs to be at least one Outstanding or GWOF school in the chain
      Other schools can join later although they won’t have a say on governance model if they do
      Need to have appropriate arrangements to support “weaker schools”
      Each school gets the £25k “support grant”
      Schools can share expertise and some set up costs
      Schools decide the model of governance that suits their chain
    • Multi-academy Trust
      Model 1
    • Multi-Academy Trust
      Schools form a single multi-academy trust which has overall responsibility
      Master funding agreement with the multi-academy trust
      Supplemental funding agreements with each individual school
      Each school has own Governing Body
      Each school has representation on the Trust Board
      Powers “delegated” to individual GBs by the Trust Board
      This is most like a “mini LA”
      Model 2
    • Umbrella Trust
      A company formed by the schools that form the chain of academies
      Has a relationship with each school but does not manage schools
      Each school has its own academy trust, and each individual academy trust in the chain (not the umbrella trust) will have its own funding agreement
      This model gives schools greater independence and is very flexible
      Where there are performance issues with a school the umbrella trust could appoint most governors of that school
    • Informal collaboration
      Model 3
    • Informal Collaboration
      Schools can form looser less formal partnership links
      This gives the most flexibility but less structure
      Would need to ensure Secretary of State of arrangements to support any weaker schools before he will agree
