Governance information

The Regis Academy is part of The Albion Foundation. As a charity and company limited by guarantee, The Albion Foundation (“TAF”) is governed by a Board of Directors (Trustees) who are responsible for, and oversee, the management and administration of TAF and The Regis Academy (“TRA”) run by TAF. The Directors are accountable to external government agencies, including the Charity Commission and the Department for Education (including any successor bodies), for the quality of the services they provide, and they are required to have systems in place through which they can assure themselves of quality, safety and good practice.

It is the Trustees and not the Members who are accountable to the external government agencies.

Delegated Functions to the Local Governing Board of The Regis Academy (TRA)

The Local Governing Board have functional responsibilities. The Local Governing Board (“LGB”) may also delegate any of its functions to a committee, or to the Head, or to groups of identified individuals, but must monitor the activities of any such individual/group and receive reports. Formal decisions resulting from delegation may only be taken at full LGB meetings. Committees may delegate their functions to an individual or working party of individuals, and names will be recorded in the minutes. The proceedings of the LGB will be regulated by the terms of reference prescribed by TAF.

A Copy of the Scheme of Delegation and Terms of Reference are available on request.
