Huish Episcopi Academy has been part of the United Learning Trust since the 1st June 2023. United Learning Trustees hold ultimate responsibility for the governance of each United Learning school.

The Department for Education’s governance handbook 2020 identifies the essentials of effective governance as follows:

  • Ensuring clarity of vision, ethos and strategic direction;
  • Holding the executive leaders to account for the educational performance of the organisation and its pupils, and the effective and efficient performance management of staff; and
  • Overseeing the financial performance of the organisation and making sure its money is well spent.

United Learning’s Trustees delegate certain key roles and responsibilities to the school’s School Improvement Board (SIB) and these are set out clearly in the Scheme of Delegation which can be viewed on the United Learning website here.
