Pennine Trust

Local School Committees

The Local School Committees carry the trust vision, policies and priorities forward, based on the specific qualities and community characteristics of each school. They support, question and challenge the school's senior leadership team, holding them to account. The constitution for each local school committee is five co-opted members, two parent members and two staff members (headteacher and one other).
