Governance

Please see below information regarding our Local Governing Board in terms of attendance at meetings, term of office and declarations of interest.

This is reviewed on an annual basis, however governors are reminded of the need to declare any changes as they occur.

The Local Governing Board operates one single meeting structure and has no Committees.  All delegated responsibilities are discussed at the LGB meetings.
