St Anne’s Academy is part of the Cranmer Education Trust. Formalised cross school governance arrangements can help with efficiencies, with ultimate corporate accountability held by the Trust Board and corporate and strategic functions being carried out centrally, leaving local governing committees free to focus on pupil progress and attainment for their individual schools.

Joy Clark (Chair of the Local Governing Committee; CEO, The Oak Trust)

Collecting and publishing governing board diversity data

Diversity is important and we want our trustees and our local governing committees to be increasingly reflective of the communities they serve. The Trust is in the process of working through GovernorHub’s facility to see if it is possible to collate Trustees’ and Local Governing Board members’ information. The return will be voluntarily, and they can opt out of sharing their information, including protected characteristics, at any given time including after publication. To ensure that individuals cannot be identified through the publication of data, anonymous data will only be published in an appropriate format based on the number of optional returns. The current legal advice is that the safest way to protect data subjects and special category data, meeting the UK GDPR standard, would be to publish information that does not amount to ‘personal’ because it is anonymous, and therefore data protection principles do not apply.
