Governance & Scheme of Delegation (Academies)

Welcome to the section of the website where you can find out more about our Governors.

The Role of Governors

Within England, there are over 300,000 School/Academy Governors, who form the largest volunteer force in the country.

The roles of individual Governors, and subsequently members of a Governing Body, work collectively to perform a strategic role and carry out key functions such as:

  • Discuss and set the aims and objectives for the Academy.
  • Set the required policies for achieving those aims and objectives.
  • Set the required targets for achieving those aims and objectives.
  • Monitor and evaluate the progress that the Academy is making towards its set aims and objectives.

Finally the role of the Academy Governor is to be a source of challenge and support to the Principal, i.e. a 'critical friend.'

The Governing Body of Harris Junior Academy Carshalton

The Academy is a member of the Harris Federation. Ultimate responsibility for the Academy rests with the Board of Trustees of the Federation, (Federation governance details and scheme of delegation can be found below), but much of the work of the Board is delegated to the Local Governing Body which is comprised of the Governors of the Academy. Some Governors are appointed by the Federation whilst others are elected by parents or guardians of students at the Academy or by staff.
