Governance & Scheme of Delegation (Academies)

The Role of the Governor

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

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 it’s set aims and objectives.

The role of the Academy Governor is to be a source of challenge and support to the Head of the Academy i.e. a 'critical friend.'

Governors drive and monitor the progress towards the Academy Improvement Plan, a copy of which is included in the documents list for this page.

The Governing Body of Harris Primary Academy Orpington

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 here) but much of the work of the Board is delegated to the Local Governing Body (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. The details of the Governors at Harris Primary Academy Orpington are shown below.
