Scheme of Delegation and Governance Handbook

This Handbook is designed to give general advice on Academy Governance, advice, and information specific to The Khalsa Academies Trust (TKAT). It should be read in conjunction with the Articles of Association of our Trust and the Scheme of Delegation. It may be supplemented by guidance published from time to time by the Department of Education or Ofsted and by the NGA Code of Conduct for Governance, which each individual Local Advisory Board should adopt. The Scheme of Delegation, available on the Trust’s website and as a separate document, supports the Handbook.

Many of those involved in our Governance are experienced Governors, Leaders, and staff at Academies and are familiar with Governance, but perhaps not with the specific requirements of being a Member of a Local Advisory Board within a MAT, a MAT Trustee or Member. This Handbook is intended as an introduction and a reference guide whatever your current role and level of experience. The DfE’s Governance Handbook, Role Descriptors, and the Academy Trust Handbook 2022 (formerly known as the Academies Financial Handbook) underpin it. At

The Khalsa Academies Trust, we believe that effective Governance should consider the knowledge of the whole academy community in which the school is based. Therefore, the delegation of responsibilities to Local Advisory Boards is focused on what matters most: pupil outcomes, the quality of teaching, the curriculum and stakeholder engagement.
