The Charter School

East Dulwich



Each school in the Charter Schools Educational Trust has a local governing body (LGB) composed of a group of volunteers drawn from the community, each bringing a range of skills, expertise and professional experience. Our Governors provide essential links between the school, parents/carers, the local community and the Trust board, which is ultimately responsible to the Department of Education for the performance of all its schools.

More information about The Charter Schools Educational Trust, including details about the Trust's mission, vision and values, the Trust Board and all financial information, can be found by following the link to the right or visiting the Charter Trust website.

Governors work with staff and parents to provide the best possible framework for educating our students. They are involved in all aspects of school life and meet regularly with the school’s leadership teams.

Local Governors fulfil their responsibilities by:

  • Supporting the Trust Board to fulfil their governance obligations as directed by the Trust's Articles of Association and Scheme of Delegation and as required by the Department for Education statutory and other guidance.
  • The LGB is responsible for delegated elements of the Trust Board’s strategic role and monitoring and oversight at a local school level.
  • The LGB is accountable to the Trust Board for ensuring that school leaders fulfil their responsibilities for educational outcomes of young people, safeguarding, health & Safety and financial management. 

Governors are appointed by the Trustees except for parent governors, who are elected by parents and carers, and staff governors, who are elected by all school staff.
