Statutory Information on Governors

Governance arrangements 2020 - 2021

Under the LDST Scheme of Delegation, our LGB consists of 13 members. All appointments to the LGB are made by the Directors of the LDST-

  • 2 Staff governors – including the Head of School and one elected by staff
  • 4 LDST foundation governors – one appointed by LDST and three appointed with particular reference to their Christian faith including the incumbent of St Georges Parish Church
  • 3 Parent governors – elected by parents
  • 4 Co-opted governors – including the Executive Headteacher and 3 recommended by governing body

Our foundation governors, together with other governors, have a responsibility to preserve and develop the school’s religious character in accordance with the principles of the Church of England. 

Our close links with St George’s Parish Church are a crucial part of maintaining, delivering and developing our Christian ethos and identity and ensuring that the school’s Mission Statement, Christian Values and Aims are embedded in all aspects of school life.

A Chair and Vice Chair are elected annually by the LGB and formally approved by LDST. The Chair for 2020-21 is Mr Neil Lockwood. 

The Clerk to the Governors, Mr Terry Brown, is employed through a Service Level Agreement with the Local Authority. The Clerk works closely with the Executive Headteacher and Chair, arranges the agendas for the meetings, takes and distributes minutes and advises on procedural matters.
