Welcome to our Governors’ section.
The governing body is the key strategic body of the school. Its role is to work with Trustees at The Heath Family (NW) MAT and ensure all statutory duties are met and the school is making good progress. The LGB operates under a Scheme of Delegation determined by the Trustees of The Heath Family (NW) following it's reconstitution in November 2018.
Governors are unpaid volunteers who have been appointed or elected on the basis of the skills they contribute to the board.
The full governing body is made up of 2 parent governors, 2 staff governors and 5 Trust Appointed governors - they all have a 4-year term of office. Current governors are shown below, along with their terms of office:
Mrs Anita Lawson – Chair of Governors from 19/9/19

Governors at Halsnead meet to discuss all issues, there are no discrete committees. Governors meet twice a term as a full governing body to discuss standards and resources.
The minutes from governing board meetings are available from the school upon request. Decisions are recorded but individual voting records are not as the governing board acts as a corporate body in law.
