All academies (including new academies like ours and converter academies like Orleans Park, Waldegrave and Teddington School) are governed by not-for-profit charitable trusts, which are closely monitored by the Audit Commission to ensure that they provide good value for the public money with which they are entrusted. Our school's Supplemental Funding Agreement sets out the terms of our funding arrangement with the Department for Education.

Russell Education Trust (RET)

In the case of Turing House the Governing Body is the Board of the Russell Education Trust, a Government-approved academy sponsor, which runs 5 schools in total. Information about RET and its trustees can be found on the RET website.

In each of its schools, RET formally delegates a range of its responsibilities to a Local Governing Body representing the community. This structure is described in RET's Scheme of Delegation and our Local Governing Body's Standing Orders.

A close, consultative relationship exists between RET and the Local Governing Bodies of its schools, and the views of local governors inform all aspects of RET policy.

The Turing House Local Governing Body includes the Headteacher, two elected parent governors and up to ten further governors appointed by the Trust.
