Steve Whiffen, United Learning’s Company Secretary, who leads on governance issues, has been working with the Chairs of Governors from the three schools to establish the governing body. Chairs of Governors are each nominating three existing governors to join the Banstead Prep School Local Governing Body (LGB).  We will also be carrying out a skills audit to identify any gaps in the LGB and taking the necessary steps to fill those gaps with additional members. The members will meet as a shadow LGB and operate alongside the three schools’ own governing bodies until the new school opens. This week we will be writing to all proposed Shadow LGB members to invite them to the first meeting, to take place at the earliest available date.
