The governing body takes strategic role in the running of the school. This includes setting up a strategic framework for the school, setting its aims and objectives, setting policies and targets for achieving the objectives and reviewing progress. The Headteacher and professional staff are accountable to the governing body for the school’s performance.

Parent governors are elected by parents, staff governors by the staff and local authority governor are appointed by the local authority. Community governors are co-opted by the Governing Body. Each governor serves a term of four years, which can be renewed.

The local governing body consists of:

Greg Duffield (Chair) – Co-opted Governor
Co-opted – appointed by the FGB – 11.02.2015
I was luckily enough to join the Governing Body at LSHS in 2014, I have one child at LSHS and another that will soon be joining. I am keen to help the school reach an Outstanding status to reflect the quality of the teaching and the experiences shared by the pupils. I am passionate about IT and would like to help LSHS make the most use of the tools and technologies available. In my spare time I enjoy cycling and flying my birds of prey. I am also Chair of the Staffing Committee.
Laura Bowater – Co-opted Governor
Co-opted – appointed February of 2018
Sally Richards – Co-opted Governor

Other members of the Senior Leadership Team attend governing body meetings as appropriate.

The Local Governing Body meets at least once every half term to support the school in moving forward.

The Chair of Governors is Greg Duffield and he can be contacted via the school or at [email protected]
