The essentials of risk management

17 January 2017

In this article we've identified the key components that will create a more dynamic environment for risk management. This will help improve your academy's risk maturity and outlook.

What assurance do you need?

Within an independent school the responsibility for managing risk rests with the Board of Governors. Should a risk materialise such as breakdown in safeguarding or financial mismanagement, there is no doubt that questions will be raised regarding the
governance and risk management processes. The responsibility of the Governors is to seek assurance that all principal risks are managed effectively.

Are you looking at the right risks?

Whether you are driven by the desire to obtain more value from your Governors meetings or improve your existing risk management then you should make sure you undertake a review of your strategic risks.

Do you have the right skills?

In order for your school to operate effectively you need to start with the right skills on your Board. When did you last undertake a skills audit of the Board? Do you have the right people to meet the school’s current and future challenges? How effective is the Board in meeting its objectives?
