Churchfield’s Local Governing Body includes parents (elected by the school's parent body), members of staff (elected by the school staff) and co-opted local governors (appointed by the local governing body and/or the Trustees, because they have the skills required to contribute to the effective governance and success of the school).
What the Local Governing Body does
The school is overseen by the Board of Trustees for the Quality First Education Trust. The Trust Scheme of Delegation sets out how certain roles and responsibilities are delegated to the local governors of each school.
Churchfield’s LGB works as a team of local governors to challenge, monitor and support the school, to make sure it provides a good quality education for its pupils. There are normally two full Local Governing Body meetings per term.
In addition to attending meetings, local governors may take on a link or lead role for an aspect of the school. As part of this link role, they will undertake pre-arranged visits and/or work with members of staff to monitor particular aspects of provision, and report back to the Local Governing Body. All governors are appointed on a 4 year term.
If you wish to contact the Local Governing Body you can do so via Irene Morley, Clerk to Governors, via the School Office.
