We hold three committee meetings per term. The three committees are directly responsible for the four areas of the Ofsted schedule. The LGB is extremely proud of our Ofsted Outstanding grade but is highly aware that we must contnue to strive to enhance the learning expereinces of our pupils.  

The Local Governing Body understands the need for a robust strategy in order to ensure the best support for pupils, while also preparing them for their next stage of education.
