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 (download available below)
If you would like a copy of any of the meeting minutes please contact the Governance Support Officer in the first instance.
Parent Governors are elected from within the parent body of the school when there is a vacancy. Any vacancies will be advertised on the school website.
