This school has a local governing body (LGB) which is responsible for making day to day decisions on the running of the school. Its power is delegated from trustees of the main multi-academy trust board.

The LGB consists of members of the local community interested in education and no formal qualifications are required as full training is given. The Headteacher is automatically a member of the LGB by nature of their position, but cannot be chair. Parents are welcome to join the LGB when there are vacancies. We particularly welcome applicants with skills in managing budgets, legal work, human resources, running a business or any work connected with young people.

Any governor vacancies will be advertised here.

Our Governing Body is a shared body with Riston Church of England Primary Academy

You can always contact any of the governors through the school office. To view our local governing body members, please follow the link here:-  LGB Members Riston and Sigglesthorne
