Governance & Scheme of Delegation (Academies)

Harris Academy Clapham 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 carers of students at the Academy or by staff. 

The governing body works together to oversee the development of the academy and has the following key roles and responsibilities:

  • ensure the provision of quality education
  • manage finance and property
  • employ staff
  • fulfil the role of a critical friend
  • recognise and celebrate achievement
  • provide support and encouragement

The scheme of delegation outlines the role of the local governing body and a copy of this is at the bottom of this tab.

Our Chair of Governors is Mr Oliver Barnes and he can be contacted via:

Alice Blackett, Clerk to the Governing Body

Harris Clapham, 33 Clarence Avene, SW4 8LD or a.blackett@harrisclapham.org.uk
