New NGA guidance on statutory framework for school governance
December 14, 2015
The NGA has produced new guidance on the statutory framework for school governance which we feel governors may find useful as a quick look up guide. It provides a practical overview of the legal framework in which governing bodies of maintained schools and academy trust boards must operate. This insightful, easy to use guide explores the legal requirements that school’s governance arrangements must comply with, including how the membership of the board is decided, how meetings will be held and how decisions will be made.
This guidance is for governors of maintained schools; academy trustees and members of local governing bodies in multi-academy trust.
