The Governing Body

Lingfield Primary School is part of the James Cook Learning Trust. The Trust has responsibility for four primary schools. Academy trusts with multiple academies may establish a type of committee known as a Local Governing Body. Each school in the James Cook Learning Trust has a Local Governing Body.

Local Governing Bodies play a crucial role in the governance of the school and commit to working together in the best interests of the school and the James Cook Learning Trust. The Trust has delegated certain responsibilities to the school’s Local Governing Body.  The main purpose of the Local Governing Body is to:

Each Local Governing Body has up to eight members, two parent governors, the Headteacher, one staff governor and four co-opted governors. Your Local Governors may be contacted via the school.
