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 it’s set aims and objectives.

Finally the 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 Academy Battersea

The 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 governance details and scheme of delegation), but much of the work of the Board is delegated to the Local Governing Body (the Governors of the 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 details of the governors at Harris Academy Battersea are shown below.

The Chair of the Academy Governing Body is Ms Dorothy Deakin Elliott, who can be contacted via the Academy’s address: Harris Academy Battersea, 401 Battersea Park Road, Battersea, London, SW11 5AP.

The Clerk to the Governing Body can be contacted on info@harrisbattersea.org.uk. Details of our governing body are listed below.
