Kingfisher Schools Trust


The key pillars of governance in the Kingfisher Schools Trust, are as follows:

  • The seven Nolan Principles of Public Life
  • Strong financial governance, ensuring good value for money and accountability across the trust
  • Clearly defined roles and responsibilities between the three tiers of governance – i.e. members, the trust board and the academy councils
  • Ensuring that all the schools in the trust are rooted in the communities they serve and ensuring the academy council is championing the stakeholders in those communities
  • Linking governance within the trust into the school improvement cycle and the relentless focus across the trust on improving the outcomes of pupils
  • Strong central governance support, promoting strong governance through co-ordinated training, governance tools and expert clerking, guidance and advice.
