Governance & Scheme of Delegation (Academies)

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:

  • 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 its set aims and objectives.

Finally the role of role of the Academy governor is to be a source of challenge and support to the Principal, i.e. a 'critical friend.'

The governing body of Harris Invictus Academy Croydon

Harris Invictus Academy Croydon is accountable to the Academy governing body and is independent from the local authority. The governing body is responsible for the setting, and subsequent monitoring of targets to be achieved over time.

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 which comprises the governors of the Academy. Some governors are appointed by the Federation whilst others are elected by parents/guardians of students at the Academy or by staff.

Our chair of governors, Alan Palmer can be contacted through our clerk to the governing body, Ms C. Headman at C.Headman@harrisinvictus.org.uk . Alternatively you can write to the Chair of Governors at the following address; Alan Palmer, Chair of Governors, Harris Invictus Academy Croydon, 88 London Road, Croydon, CR0 2TB
