Governance Structure


GOVERNANCE STRUCTURE ACROSS THE DEAN TRUST

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.

Contact
To contact any member of your Governing Body, please contact the school on the main school number in the first instance.
Alternatively, you can contact the Governance Support Officer, Mrs Ruth Warburton, via email: ruthwarburton@thedeantrust.co.uk

Parent/Staff Governors
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.
Staff Governors are elected from within the staff body of the school when there is a vacancy.

All governors sign up to The Dean Trust code of practice.
