TRUST BOARD FOUNDATION GOVERNOR

Appointed by: Trust Board (appointed 19.04.21)
Term of Office:
4 Years 
Meetings 2021/22:
5/5
Meetings 2022/23: 1/1
Business and Pecuniary Interests: N/A

Bio: Married to Sarah, we have a son and married daughter, now in their 20s and living in the London area. My own school education was in Shropshire followed by six years at the University of London where I graduated with a degree and doctorate in mathematics. I continued at university in Los Angeles, returning after two years to the UK and the University of Durham. This was followed by twelve years in industry with the UK Atomic Energy Authority before returning to university, this time to the University of Hull. I retired in July 2020 having served as Head of Mathematics and Faculty Admissions Tutor, overseeing admissions to Science and Engineering degree programmes. As a recently appointed Foundation Governor at Archbishop Sentamu Academy, I have come to see how much the Academy has to offer in terms of opportunity for all, in particular building confidence and raising aspiration for our young people, qualities which I believe are needed so much here in Hull.

MULTI-ACADEMY TRUST GOVERNANCE

A Multi-Academy Trust (MAT) is a legal entity accountable for the running of the organisation and all the academies within it. The MAT is a charitable company limited by guarantee, and has multiple layers of governance: the Members, the Board of Trustees and Board Committees, which include a Local Governing Committee for each academy within the MAT.

The Local Governing Committee serves as a sub-committee of the Hope Sentamu Learning Trust York Board of Trustees, and their responsibilities are set out within the Trust’s Scheme of Delegation. If required, the Board can either delegate more powers to the Local Governing Committee or withdraw powers in exceptional situations. Governors are not involved in the operational running of the academy; the daily management of the academy is the responsibility of the Principal. All decisions are made as a group; governors are there as a corporate body responsible for the governance of the academy and not to represent their own interests or the interest of others.

WHAT DOES THE LOCAL GOVERNING COMMITTEE DO?

Local governors have three central duties:

i) setting the vision of the local academy
ii) holding the Headteacher/Principal to account
iii) and ensuring the academy’s financial management is to the highest possible standard.

Governors carry out their tasks in a number of different ways, through regular meetings and visits to the academy. Meetings are held at least once a term.

For a full list of Trust Board and LGC meetings, please see below.

The Local Governing Committee provides the school with a wide range of skills and experience which supports the Senior Leadership team in vital decisions that enhance the academy’s environment, curriculum and delivery of the best educational experience possible.

If you are interested in becoming a governor for our school, please contact us by email: hello@asa.hlt.academy

SKILLS AND TRAINING

Governors do not need specific skills, but many of the tasks they are required to undertake can benefit from general business knowledge such as understanding management systems, budget planning and HR functions.

Local authorities are required to ensure that training for governors is available and most governing bodies buy into their local authority training packages (which may include online learning) to ensure that governors are properly inducted to their role and trained for specific tasks such as appointing the Principal and then carrying out the Principal’s performance review.
