Local Governing Committee

 

The Trust Board delegate some functions of the ‘day to day’ running of The Weald to the Local Governing Committee through a Scheme of Delegation, which can be seen below.

Key activities include:

  1. Delivering excellent education for every pupil
  2. Enhancing the distinctively Christian character of our Church schools
  3. Ensuring sound financial management and effective use of public funds
  4. Agree the aims and objectives for the school
  5. Set the policies to achieve those objectives
  6. Set challenging but realistic targets for teaching and monitor and evaluate the progress the school is making
  7. Be a source of challenge and support to the Headteacher (acting as a ‘critical friend’)

 

The Local Governing Committee (LGC) receive regular reports on standards and teaching and monitor progress data. They visit the school regularly, covering all classes, to monitor progress and identify any issues and provide an oversight and agree the budget of the school.

The Headteacher is responsible for the internal organisation, management and control of the school and working to the objectives agreed by the LGC. The LGC provides the framework within which he and his staff work.

 

The LGC meets six times per year (more if required and at least once per half term) and all LGC members are expected to attend. 

 

The LGC comprises of people chosen and appointed by The Good Shepherd Trust, for their expertise and ability to work with school leaders, in order to accelerate the rate of school improvement. There is much to celebrate in the school’s progress to date and the LGC are supporting the initiatives for ongoing improvement, which are already having a demonstrable impact. 

 

Further information regarding the local governance of our school can be found on the Get Information About Schools website.
