Governance Models for Chains of Academies

I blogged earlier this year on Academy status in a post called Academy Status: The Question that won't go away about how all schools should be considering academy status seriously and why this was an especially pressing issue in Suffolk. For some schools and particular smaller primary schools moving to academy status as part of a "chain of academies" might be a sensible and attractive option.

Academy status gives a huge amount of flexibility in terms of governance models and I have put together a short presentation showing the three main options of chains of academies: Multi-Academy Trust, Umbrella Trust and Informal Collaboration in the hope it will be helpful to Governors. The information has been checked with the DfE at the time of putting this together so if you come across this months down the line please check that things haven't changed too much as this is a fast moving area.
