West Ewell Primary School and Auriol Junior School Local Governing Committee
In September 2021, Local Governing Committees (LGCs) at both West Ewell Primary and Auriol Junior School began working under an alternative structure for governance.
The rationale for creating a single group of governors across more than one school was to develop the culture in governance of thinking and working as one connected organisation and also provide opportunities for governors to benchmark across more than one setting.
Furthermore, this approach has provided a structure to support succession planning and the recruitment of high calibre governors who can offer between them the range of skills and competences required to ensure that both governing committees are both strategic and highly effective. Following a pilot of two academic years it has been agreed at trust level and by both LGCs that Auriol Junior School and West Ewell Primary School will operate with a single LGC.
