Becoming a local governing committee member

Some members are elected by parents and staff, others are nominated by the local governing committee for approval by the trust board or co-opted directly by the local governing committee. The role is voluntary although individuals are entitled to claim expenses in line with the trust's Director and Local Governor Expenses Policy.
