• The Governing Group have a responsibility with the Executive Principal for deciding, reviewing and monitoring many of the policies, plans and procedures within which the academy operates

• The Governing Group role is strategic. The Executive Principal’s role is both strategic and operational

• It is important to recognise that the Governing Group are part of a team. They all have equal status and though they are appointed by different groups (parents, staff, Wellspring Trust, etc.), their main concern is the welfare of the whole academy

• The Governing Group make decisions democratically, by consensus. The Governing Group do not have individual powers to act alone

• The Governing Group have a duty to act fairly and without prejudice at all times

• The Governing Group share the responsibility of appointing staff with the academy and must act in the same way as any good employee

• The Governing Group should consider carefully how their own decisions might affect other academies
