Chains of Academies Governance Models

  1. 1. Chains of AcademiesGovernance Models<br />James Hargrave<br />Chair of GovernorsStradbroke Primary Schoov1.2a 24 March 2011<br />
  2. 2. Models for Governance<br />Governance and Management models are independent and a given governance model doesn’t mean a particular management structure<br />There are three main governance models suggested by the DfE for chains of academies<br />Multi-academy Trust<br />Umbrella Trust<br />Informal collaboration<br />The information about these models was all provided by the DfE<br />
  3. 3. Chains of Academies<br />Any school can join a chain irrespective of their own Ofsted rating<br />Each Governing Body needs to pass a separate resolution<br />Needs to be at least one Outstanding or GWOF school in the chain<br />Other schools can join later although they won’t have a say on governance model if they do<br />Need to have appropriate arrangements to support “weaker schools”<br />Each school gets the £25k “support grant”<br />Schools can share expertise and some set up costs<br />Schools decide the model of governance that suits their chain<br />
  4. 4. Multi-academy Trust<br />Model 1<br />
  5. 5.
  6. 6. Multi-Academy Trust<br />Schools form a single multi-academy trust which has overall responsibility<br />Master funding agreement with the multi-academy trust<br />Supplemental funding agreements with each individual school<br />Each school has own Governing Body<br />Each school has representation on the Trust Board<br />Powers “delegated” to individual GBs by the Trust Board<br />This is most like a “mini LA”<br />
  7. 7. UMBRELLA TRUST<br />Model 2<br />
  8. 8.
  9. 9. Umbrella Trust<br />A company formed by the schools that form the chain of academies<br />Has a relationship with each school but does not manage schools<br />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<br />This model gives schools greater independence and is very flexible<br />Where there are performance issues with a school the umbrella trust could appoint most governors of that school<br />
  10. 10. Informal collaboration<br />Model 3<br />
  11. 11.
  12. 12. Informal Collaboration<br />Schools can form looser less formal partnership links<br />This gives the most flexibility but less structure<br />Would need to ensure Secretary of State of arrangements to support any weaker schools before he will agree<br />
