Governing Body Membership


Each school has its own Local Governing Body. This body of governors report to The Dean Trust Board.

Within each Local Governing Body there are several small committees which focus on particular areas such as: HR & Personnel; Pupil Progress; Curriculum and Standards. Additional committees are formed from across the Trust Board and LGBs as and when required to deal with specific areas such as Admissions or Health and Safety (Environment/Premises).

Some individual governors have responsibility across more than one school in the Trust due to their skills and experience.

All governors sign up to The Dean Trust code of practice
