School governing body


Chilmington Green School is a part of United Learning whose Trustees hold the ultimate responsibility for the governance of each United Learning School.

The Department for Education’s governance handbook 2020 identifies the essentials of effective governance as follows:

  • Ensuring clarity of vision, ethos and strategic direction;
  • Holding the executive leaders to account for the educational performance of the organisation and its pupils, and the effective and efficient performance management of staff; and
  • Overseeing the financial performance of the organisation and making sure its money is well spent.

United Learning’s Trustees delegate certain key roles and responsibilities to the school’s Local Governing Body (LGB) and these are set out clearly in our Scheme of Delegation which can be seen on the United Learning website.

United Learning Scheme of Delegation

The Principal and Senior Leadership Team will be accountable to a Local Governing Body (LGB) which will be responsible for monitoring academic achievement and the well-being of students, including welfare and health and safety.

The LGB will also monitor the financial management of the school and provide advice on the future direction of the school.

Chilmington Green School’s LGB will include parent and staff representatives as well as those from the local community. It will work with other United Learning LGB teams in Kent to help build partnerships across the cluster.

Please feel free to email with any questions or expressions of interest.
