Safeguarding: The Local Advisory Board is fully committed to maintaining the highest standards of Safeguarding. Members have read and signed the Keeping Children Safe in Education Policy and the signed documentation is with the Clerk to the board.

LAB Members play a vital role in promoting high standards of educational achievement. They share a common belief that children should receive the best possible standard of education in all areas of their development. This is in the interests of current and future pupils.
Members of the LAB include:
School staff
Parents of pupils
Members of the public from all walks of life.

LAB Members are committed to serving the best interests of the school. As unpaid voluntary public servants, they help to sustain their school’s identity and provide a link with the local community. An effective board is a source of enormous strength to the school.
Advisory board membership is the most important volunteering role in education.
