Local Governing Body (LGB)

Our Local Governing Body (LGB) meets once every half term to discuss school business and monitor progress in meeting school improvement targets. 

The Chair of LGB keeps in close contact with the school throughout the year and meets regularly with the Head of School. 

LGB members visit regularly and attend charity fundraisers, wellbeing days, parents’ evening and other events throughout the year. 

LGB members regularly attend School Parliament meetings and discuss key issues with pupils. Safeguarding procedures, policies and cases are monitored by LGB members.

The LGB monitors the progress of the School Development Plan and works with the Head of School in managing the school’s budget and resources.  

Heads of Departments and subject leads attend LGB meetings and report on key strengths and development points.

LGB members are encouraged to attend training especially training that is linked to school improvement objectives.
