Governor

The Trustees of Zenith Multi Academy Trust would like to invite you become a local governor
at The James Hornsby School.

Effective governance is based on six key features:

1. Strategic leadership that sets and champions vision, ethos and strategy.
2. Accountability that drives up educational standards and financial performance.
3. People with the right skills, experience, qualities and capacity.
4. Structures that reinforce clearly defined roles and responsibilities.
5. Compliance with statutory and contractual requirements.
6. Evaluation to monitor and improve the quality and impact of governance

Governance functions can be delegated by the Trust board to local governing bodies
(LGBs). Regardless of the extent of delegation, the Trust remains accountable for the
performance of all its schools to the Secretary of State.

No special qualifications are needed and the most important thing is to have a keen interest
in the school and be prepared to play an active part in the governing body’s work. This is an
unpaid, voluntary role.

Zenith Multi Academy Trust is committed to safeguarding the welfare of young people and
expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment. This post will be subject to an

the UK check.
