This guide to the role of the CFO describes the role and responsibilities of CFOs in academy trusts including free schools, studio schools, university technical colleges and city technical colleges.

It builds on CIPFA’s Statement on the Role of the Chief Financial Officer in Public Service Organisations, and interprets the principles and roles set out in that document for academies.
