Farnborough Grange Nursery/Infant Community School is an academy in The Good Shepherd Trust, a family of church and community school academies within the Diocese of Guildford. 


The Trust has established Local Committees for each of their academies. The Trust has delegated a number of activities to local committees. Further details can be found within the Scheme of Delegation. Each local committee is responsible for:

  • Establishing the strategic direction
  • Ensuring accountability
  • Overseeing compliance
  • Ensuring risks to the organisation are managed


The categories of membership are:

  • The Head teacher, whose term of office continues whilst they are in post;
  • Parent/carer member of children on roll at the time of appointment at the school, elected by the parent body and formally appointed by the GST. Parent/carer members may be appointed by the GST if there are fewer nominations than vacancies;
  • Staff member, one member of the school staff from each school as a representative of the staff, elected by the staff body;
  • General member.


A term of office for a local committee member is four years and a local committee member may serve two terms (8 years) if eligible – parents/staff would have to be re-elected to be eligible. In exceptional circumstances, and where it is in the best interests of the trust, a local committee member may serve a further period up to four years whilst a successor is found.
