The Arthur Bugler Local Governing Body (LGB) consists of parents, staff, and members of the local community who volunteer to provide strategic leadership to our school.

We have three key responsibilities:

  1. To provide strategic direction, working with parents, pupils, and staff, to provide a vision, ethos, and strategic direction for our school
  2. To hold the headteacher to account for the performance of the school, its pupils, and staff
  3. To ensure the finances of the school are well managed

We have high aspirations for our school and are proud of the huge improvements that have been made in the school over the last few years. We aim to be an outstanding school and strive to ensure every child in our care achieves their best, in line with the cooperative values.

All members of the LGB attend full governing body meetings, and will meet typically once each half term, but more often if required. All work of the LGB, whether carried out in committee meetings, by individual governors or working parties, will be reported back to the LGB by way of reports (written or verbal) or minutes which will be submitted as papers for the LGB meeting.

The LGB meetings alternate between Curriculum matters and Resource cover all matters relating to the education of Arthur Bugler pupils, including all aspects of student personal development behavior and welfare and all matters relating to teaching, learning, assessment, and outcomes.
