The Basildon Academies Trust Board of Trustees delegates responsibility for delivery of the vision and strategy to the Chief Executive. The Basildon Academies Trust Trustees Board holds the Chief Executive to account for the performance of the Trust, including the performance of the academies within the Trust. The Chief Executive in turn holds the Headteacher and executive leaders to account.
The Scheme of Delegation also includes delegation to the Chief Executive and Headteachers, as well as to the committees of the Board of Trustees. The Board cannot delegate its responsibility or accountability, but delegates some of the detailed scrutiny, oversight and decision-making.
The Chief Executive, Headteachers and Executive Leaders will report to the trust board on the performance of the Trust including on the performance of the Trust’s schools, although this may be supplemented by monitoring reports from the governing bodies.
The Basildon Academies Trust Board determines on a case by case basis whether to delegate some day to day decision making, actions and monitoring concerning the performance of each academy to the local governing bodies.
