Governance and Responsibilities

Description

Principals of established academies talk about how academy status affects school governance, the advantages of academy status, and the new responsibilities it brings, in this school governance resource.

For Sally Coates, principal of Burlington Danes Academy, being an academy means a "smaller, tighter governing body".

Sir Michael Wilshaw of Mossbourne Academy, explains how one of the main benefits is being able to make "financial decisions very quickly without writing letters in triplicate to the local education authority".

Venessa Willms at King Solomon Academy, Primary, and Steve Kenning at Harris City Academy, Crystal Palace, also share their views on governance and responsibility in this video which covers both primary and secondary academies.
