From September 2018, Leyland Methodist Junior School Governors opted to formally collaborate with Leyland Methodist Infant School. The aim of the collaboration was for the two schools to work in closer partnership. To this end, from September 2018, some committees have been merged to cover the interests of both schools. In addition, there is also a Joint Committee comprising members of both Governing Bodies appointed to oversee the progress of the collaboration.


From September 2018, the following committees are in place:

Joint Committee (LMJS and LMIS Governors);

Premises, Health & Safety (LMJS and LMIS Governors);

Ethos & Curriculum (LMJS and LMIS Governors);

Staffing & Finance (LMJS Governors);

Standards and Effectiveness (LMJS Governors);

Pay Committee (LMJS Governors);

Appraisal Committee (LMJS and LMIS Governors).

There are other committees in place that meet as and when required e.g. Complaints Appeals Committee, Pupil Discipline Committee etc.
