A skills audit will be completed on a regular basis and further representatives will be appointed (or, in the case of parent representatives, elected if there is more than one candidate for each position) to ensure that the LGB covers the full set of skills required for effective governance.

Members of the LGB are appointed or elected for a period of four years. They may then be re-appointed or re-elected for one further term of office, giving a maximum of eight years in total.

All representatives are required to disclose any interests they may have which could relate to their role as a member of the LGB. A list of disclosures and interests can be found here.

LGB members are bound by the NGA Code of Conduct and the conventions established in the Nolan Committee’s “Seven Principles of Public Life”.

The Scheme of Delegation, outlining the LGB’s remit and responsibilities, can be found here.

Neatherd’s “School Funding Agreement” with the Department for Education can be found here.
