Governance

Christ’s College Local Governing Committee (LGC)

Christ’s College is part of the Good Shepherd Trust (GST). The GST is a multi-academy trust within the Diocese of Guildford. More information about the GST can be found here.

The GST has given the Local Governing Committee (LGC) a scheme of delegation which shows what the LGC is responsible for.

The members of the LGC, the Headteacher and staff work together constantly to improve the quality of the education we provide to our children and to promote Christian values in all aspects of school life.

Declarations of interest are declared and reviewed at LGC meetings and are recorded in the minutes.

Our LGC members perform a vital service to our College supporting the delivery of a high quality education while ensuring that all aspects are efficiently managed and stay true to our vision, ethos and values.

What does an LGC do?

The LGC is a committee of the Good Shepherd Trust and has delegated responsibility:

1. To develop the Christian ethos, vision and values of the (church) school in line with those of The Good Shepherd Trust and reflecting the needs of the local community

2. To seek assurance and evaluate the impact and effectiveness (of church schools) with the SIAMS framework

3. To support and challenge the school’s leadership team

4. To demonstrate appropriate challenge by holding school leaders to account for academic performance, quality of care, provision and safeguarding

5. To challenge and support in terms of learning, standards, safety and wellbeing. This includes identifying committee members that take on a special link responsibility in areas including: Safeguarding, SENd, Health and Safety and Early Years and Sixth Form (where applicable).

6. To consider the impact of the school’s performance of spending against budget expenditure.

7. To follow the Trust policy for dealing with complaints and support the Principal School Leader in the recruitment and selection, grievance and disciplinary processes, where permitted and appropriate.

8. To participate in panels to review the decisions of the Principal School Leaders of other Schools within the Trust in exclusion cases where appropriate and, if requested, for staff recruitment.

9. To record visits to the school both during school hours (with prior arrangement with the Principal School Leader) and other events as appropriate.

10. To draw any significant recommendations and matters of concern to the attention of the Trust Board via the Link Director of Education/CEO as appropriate.

How often are meetings held?

LGC are held approximately twice a term. Part 1 (non-confidential) minutes of these meetings are public documents and can be requested from the school office.

What are the different types of membership?

· Ex officio members: the Principal School Leader;

· Foundation members: representatives nominated by the Church (4-year term);

· Parent members: elected by parents of registered pupils at the academy and must be a parent of a pupil at the academy at the time of the election (4-year term);

· Staff member: 1 member of the school staff from each school appointed as a representative of the staff (4-year term);

· General member (4-year term).

I’m interested in joining the LGC, what should I do?

Firstly, thank you! If you would like to be considered to be appointed to the LGC you should contact the Chair via the school office for an informal chat about where your strengths and experience might be best used.
