Governance reviews for academy trusts

Wrigleys Solicitors and Satis Education provide a governance review service which assesses and reports on the governance function of an academy trust, provides targeted recommendations where action is required and offers further support where necessary.

Wrigleys has a nationally recognised team of dedicated lawyers who work with a range of academy trusts and have encountered and resolved many different governance issues. The firm is steeped in the sector and has a detailed understanding of the governance and compliance framework for academy trusts. Many of our staff also have experience as academy governors or trustees of academy trusts.

Satis Education has first-hand practical experience of governance in academy trusts, with a portfolio that spans visioning (including the development of growth plans and operating models), governance reviews, health checks and developing governance frameworks.

Why do a governance review?

Your academy trust is required to comply with the Academy Trust Handbook, which imposes strict governance requirements. A failure to comply, even a minor infringement, can attract the attention of the Education and Skills Funding Agency.  Repeated and more serious breaches can lead to a Notice to Improve and ultimately re-brokerage of your academy trust. Regular governance reviews can help avoid formal intervention of this kind.

There is also a wealth of best practice for you to draw on to support and improve how your academy trust is governed and ultimately ensure your success. A governance review will identify areas that can be improved and recommend best practice that best suits your particular circumstances.

Our governance review service offers you three levels of service.
