Governance

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.

 

I am interested in joining the LC, what should I do?

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

 

The local committee meets six times per year (more if required but at least once per half term) and all local committee members are expected to attend.  All local committee member appointments are made by The Good Shepherd Trust and the term of office is four years, unless otherwise stated. This excludes the Headteacher.

 

The local committee Chair is Mrs Larry Peppin, who can be contacted by email here.
