Scheme of Delegation of Governance

The standard Scheme of Delegation sets out the decisions that the trust board delegates to its board committees, the local governing committees of its academies, the Chief Executive Officer and the Headteachers of its academies in normal circumstances.  The trust board reviews this at least annually as part of its self-evaluation of governance.

In some circumstances the trust board may agree a bespoke Scheme of Delegation for a specific academy or academies in light of local circumstances.  Any bespoke Schemes currently in operation are also provided below.

A separate addendum to the Scheme of Delegation was agreed by the Board of Directors on 01.06.20 to ensure there is clarity and transparency in the governance oversight of the trust's response to the COVID-19 pandemic.  This will be withdrawn when the Board decide that it is no longer required.
