At Millbrook Park our School Governors are, for academy purposes, referred to as Local Area Committee members, or the LAC.
The Local Academy Committee (LAC) consists of 9 people. They are appointed by the LDBS Academies Trust (LAT), who also appoints the Chair. The Head Teacher (or Executive Head Teacher) is always a member of the LAC. The Head of School will attend all meetings.
Two members of the LAC will be elected by the parents and information about the procedure will be sent to eligible parents once the children are settled into school.
One member will be elected by the staff of the school.
As a faith school, one place is allocated to the Vicar of St Paul's Mill Hill and, because the school also falls within the parish of St Mary's Hendon one place is allocated to a parish committee member from Hendon.
Governors, with the exception of Parent Governors, are checked for suitability and interviewed by the LAC to ensure that each appointed member will bring skills and qualities which are complementary and to ensure that the school has the right people, with the right skills to lead the school forward and are then appointed by the Trust through the Trust Directors.
In special circumstances the school can co-opt a committee member for one year.
