Trustees

 

Trustees, alongside the school and Team Lanesend, develop what the future of the school should be, help develop the plan and then support the Headteacher in implementing it.

The role of the Trustees board is a strategic one; its key functions are to:

• set the aims and objectives for the school
• set the policies for achieving those aims and objectives
• set the targets for achieving those aims and objectives
• monitor and evaluate the progress the school is making towards achievement of its aims and objectives
• be a source of challenge and support to the Headteacher (a critical friend)

Here at Lanesend the Trustees meet as a full group on a Wednesday evening once every half term. Each Trustee belongs to at least one Commissioning Group (see below) which also meets two weeks before every Full Trustees meeting. These groups enable different areas of the school to be examined in more detail.

The Trustees of our school are:

  •  Ian Carrington (Chair)
  • Steve Dixon
  • Laura Augustus (Vice Chair)
  • Tara Hopkinson
  • Jo Hunter
  • Emma Norton
  • Karen Herbert-Duff
  • Caroline Sice 
  • Andrea Flux
  • James Hall

 
The Members of our school are:

  • Eric Hemming (Chair)
  • Gillian Bilbo
  • Anne Glentworth
  • Scott Raven 


Our members meet 3 times a year to discuss the strategic overview of our school.
