Potters Gate C of E Primary School and St Andrew’s C of E Infant School

LOCAL GOVERNING COMMITTEE (LGC)

Potters Gate CE Primary School and St Andrew’s CE Infant School are part of the Good Shepherd Trust (GST). The GST is a multi-academy trust within the Diocese of Guildford. More information about the GST can be found here.

The Trust has given the Local Governing Committee (LGC) a scheme of delegation which shows what the LGC is responsible for.

The members of the LGC, the Headteacher and staff work together constantly to improve the quality of the education we provide to our children and to promote Christian values in all aspects of school life at both Potters Gate and St Andrew’s.

Declarations of interest are declared and reviewed at the LGC, the Curriculum & Learning Committee and the Resources Committee meetings and are recorded in the minutes.

The LGC is a committee of the Good Shepherd Trust and has delegated responsibility for:

How often are meetings held?

LGC, Resources and Children & Learning meetings are held approximately twice a term. Part 1 (non-confidential) minutes of these meetings are public documents and can be requested from the school office.

 

What are the different types of membership?

I’m interested in joining the LGC, what should I do?

Firstly, thank you! If you would like to be considered to be appointed to the LGC you should contact the Chair (chair@potters-gate.surrey.sch.uk) for an informal chat about where your strengths and experience might be best used.
