The Governing Body

Across England, there are over 300,000 school/academy Governors, who form the largest volunteer force in the country.

Members of Chobham Academy’s 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. A separate Finance and General Purposes committee meets termly, reporting to the Full Governing Body, its role is to ensure financial compliance and good value for money as well as keep an oversight of buildings and human resources. 
  • 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’.

We're fortunate to have an active Governing Body, who take a strategic role in ensuring the Academy provides the best possible provision for our learners.

Chobham Academy is operated by the Harris Federation, a charity with a long and outstanding track record in education, on behalf of the Chobahm Academy trust (see below).  You can click here to read more about the Harris Federation.Click here to view the Harris Federation Governance and Scheme of Delegation.

Chobham Academy 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 Governing Body includes representation from staff and parents, as well as our Sponsor Governors, representing the Harris Federation and Lend Lease.

Lord Harris of Peckham (Lead Sponsor for Harris Federation):
