Walworth Academy Governing Body
Academies are publicly funded, independently governed schools run within the state sector and funded on the same basis. Each academy has a sponsor, in this case ARK Schools, and is run by agreement with the Secretary of State for Education (DfE) on behalf of the Government. The DfE funds the full running costs of the academy.
Walworth Academy is operated by ARK Schools, a charitable company incorporated to oversee the academies it sponsors.
The ARK Schools board is the legally responsible governing body which, in practice, delegates most of its functions to the Walworth Governing Body.
Walworth Academy’s local governing body is made up as follows:
Up to 6-10 members nominated by ARK Schools. These are usually people with a local connection who are committed to supporting educational opportunity in the area. ARK Schools periodically advertises for people who are interested in becoming governors.
A parent representative (often the chair of the Parent Council)
A representative nominated by Southwark Council
The academy principal and two elected representatives of teaching and non teaching staff.
Governors are appointed or elected for two year terms. The initial term of the first chair and vice chair of governors will be three years, with annual election by the governing body thereafter. (Academy staff may not be chair or vice chair of the governing body).
