Harris Academies
All Academies in our Federation aim to transform the lives of the students they serve by bringing about rapid improvement in examination results, personal development and aspiration.

The Governing Body

Harris Garrard Academy is a member of the Harris Federation. Ultimate responsibility for the academy rests with the Board of Trustees of the Federation (see the Federation's governance details and scheme of delegation).

However, much of the work of the Board is delegated to the Local Governing Body (the governors of Harris Garrard 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 Chair of the Academy Governing Body at Harris Garrard Academy is Mr Dave Wellard. The details of all the governors at Harris Garrard Academy are:

The role of governor

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:

  • Discussing and setting the aims and objectives for the academy
  • Setting the required targets for achieving those aims and objectives
  • Setting the required policies for achieving those aims and objectives
  • Monitoring and evaluating 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 (a 'critical friend') to the Principal.

Governors and trustees have an important part to play in raising school standards. The role of the governing board is absolutely key to the effectiveness of a school. Time and time again Ofsted, the national inspection body for schools, has noted that the most effective schools demonstrate effective leadership and management - including by the governing board.

Strategic leadership

School governors provide strategic leadership and accountability in schools and academies. It is governors who hold the main responsibility for finance in schools, and it is governors who work with the Principal to make the tough decisions about balancing resources.

The Academy Governing Body includes representation from staff and parents, as well as our sponsor governors. We are very fortunate to have an active governing body who take a strategic role in ensuring the academy provides the best possible provision for our learners.

To contact our Chair of Governors, please contact the Clerk to the Governing Body, Linda Hayden. E-mail: l.hayden@harrisgarrard.org.uk. Telephone: 020 8320 4800.
