Legal duty to provide governance information

More details

All maintained school governing bodies and academy trusts have a legal duty to provide all of the governance information requested on this page in so far as it is available to them. This will increase the transparency of governance arrangements. It will enable schools and the department to identify more quickly and accurately individuals who are involved in governance, and who govern in more than one context. The information requested says nothing in itself about a person's suitability to govern. However, it is essential information for the department to be able to uniquely identify an individual and in a small number of cases conduct checks to confirm their suitability for this important and influential role. You should provide all of the information requested insofar as it is available to you. A minimum set of information needs to be provided before a record can be saved.

Delegated authority of local governing body

More details
The Dover Federation for the Arts Multi Academy Trust has one Board of Trustees (members) and Board of Directors. Each school within the Federation has a local Academy Board. Delegated responsibility to local boards is limited to monitoring impact and reporting to Directors. A full decision planner with specific delegated powers can be accessed through the website. www.dfamat.com

Corporate contact

More details
This only applies to organisations (most often a diocese or higher education institution) which are a corporate member or director/trustee of an academy trust. They should provide contact details here for someone in their organisation who can provide information on which members of their organisation have acted in the capacity of corporate member or corporate director/trustee.
