All Governors are appointed by the CfBT Schools Trust and serve for a four-year period of office, except for the Executive Headteacher who serves ex officio. The Lincolnshire Strategic Board is accountable to the Trust for strategy, monitoring, oversight and challenge within the school. To assist in its work, the LSB has the following committees:

  • A Remuneration and Admissions Committee to consider pay and performance matters, admissions, exclusions, complaints etc.

The Chairman of the LSB is Mr Tim Dawson and the Clerk is Ms Pam Marshall.  Both can be contacted via the school office at any of our schools or by email to pam.marshall@benjaminadlard.lincs.sch.uk.
