Today has seen the launch of NGA’s new report on the governance of multi-academy trusts, and a fine piece of work it is too.

We’ve also this week seen the publication of a new Academies Financial Handbook, with key new provisions around governance. As an organisation working with executive leaders and their trust boards, I thought it would be helpful to contribute my reflections on some of the key findings and our own experiences and insights on these issues. Here’s my second of three blogs.
