Governance Structure

HMFA structure chart Academic Year 16-17 colour

The Herefordshire Marches Federation of Academies (HMFA) is a charitable company and is accountable for the strategic direction of each of the Academies within the Multi Academy Trust (MAT). The Trust has 2 layers of governance as laid out in the Articles of Association – the Members of the Trust and the Board of Directors.
Each of the 3 Academies (Lord Scudamore, Sutton and Kings Caple) within the Trust has a Local Advisory Body (formerly Local Governing Body) which is a Committee of the Board of Directors, with delegated key function. They perform a crucial role in providing the Trust with the necessary tools to ensure that it can maintain the individual character of each of the Academies.
The HMFA MAT Scheme of Delegation (see pdf on right) defines the lines of responsibility and accountability within our Multi-Academy Trust. It is a systematic way of ensuring that Members, Directors and Local Advisory Boards are clear about their roles and responsibilities.

The governance structure is shown in the chart above.
