Effective Governance


Inicio Academies is governed by non-executive trustees constituted under a Memorandum of Association and Articles of Association 


The Trustees have delegated responsibility for three core strategic functions (strategic direction, holding the Head Teachers/Heads of School/Principal to account for educational performance and overseeing the financial performance and compliance of the academies) 


The Trust has two Committees and the membership of the Committees is reviewed and agreed by the Trustees (Finance & Resources Committee and Standards Committee) 

The Trustees are responsible for the performance of each Academy within the MAT; however, a range of responsibilities may be delegated to the LGBs. The levels of delegation will be based upon the principle of “earned autonomy” and decided by the Trustees and the Executive Board and will be dependent upon the strength and capacity of each school.The LGB in conjunction with the Board of Trustees is responsible for the following areas as aligned with the Competency Framework for Governance (DfE): 

  • Strategic Leadership 
  • Accountability 
  • People and Structures 
  • Compliance 
  • Code of Conduct 
  • Evaluation
