The board of trustees is the accountable body of the trust, and is responsible for the conduct and standards of all the schools within it. The board must fulfil the following three core governance functions, as described in the Governance Handbook:
- Ensure clarity of vision, ethos and strategic direction.
- Hold the executive to account for the educational performance of the schools and their pupils, and the performance management of staff.
- Oversee the financial performance of the trust and make sure its money is well spent.

The Chief Executive Officer (CEO)
The Academies Financial Handbook makes it clear that all academy trusts must have a senior executive leader, and that this should be a permanent role. This person should also be nominated as the trust’s ‘accounting officer’, a role which includes personal responsibility for the financial resources under the trust’s control.
