Governance services for academy schools

It is crucial that you put into place appropriate governance structures, policies and procedures.

As part of your Annual Report and Accounts, you are required to prepare a Governance Statement and a statement on regularity, propriety and compliance. These statements are required to be independently audited. It is therefore crucial that you put in place appropriate governance structures, policies and procedures to ensure that there are clear lines of accountability within your organisation.
