Project Description

Hallmarks of Good Governance in Academy Trusts – Special Report. This Special Report from Elderflower Legal examines what effective governance in an academy trust looks like and how boards can create a framework to deliver their core purpose and properly discharge their duties.

England’s state education system is moving inexorably towards a school-led system with a diverse landscape of structures, partnerships and institutions entrusted with delivering statutory education with public funds. The need for robust governance and accountability has never been greater. Trustees face a daunting task in assembling a picture of all the requirements. In this report we aim to provide a route map, explain and demystify.
