Governors

Welcome to our Governors’ section.

 

 

From April 2020, Leyland Methodist Junior School Governors and Leyland Methodist Infant School Governors opted to enter into a formal federation. The aim of this federation was for the two schools to work in partnership together after nearly two years of successful collaborative working. To this end, from April 2020, the two governing boards merged to become a single governing board operating under the Federation name of Leyland Methodist Schools. All governors from both schools were invited to be members of the new governing board and where they were insufficient places under the new constitution, the governing board agreed to co-opt the remaining members for a new term of office. As such our new single governing board comprises members of both schools' previously separate governing boards.

 

From September 2020, the following committees are in place:

 

Premises, Health & Safety;

Ethos & Curriculum;

Staffing & Finance;

Standards and Effectiveness;

Pay Committee;

Appraisal Committee.

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

 

Details of how our Governing board is constituted can be found further down this page under Statutory Governor Information.

 

Contact details for our Chair of Governors (Matthew Tomlinson) are cllrmatt@aol.co.uk.

 

Our schools buy into a service level agreement with Lancashire Authority to provide clerking services to the governing board. Our clerk to the schools is Ms G Donohoe.
