Sandcross Primary School

Inspiring Lifelong Success

Our Local Committee

School governors (known as Local Committee Members in our Trust) are people who want to make a positive contribution to children’s education.  Local Committee Members & Governors are one of the largest volunteer forces in the country and have an important part to play in raising school standards.  The role of the governing board (Local Committee) is crucial to the effectiveness of a school. (National Governors Association)

The Local Committee Members (LCMs) at Sandcross Primary School are a highly effective, committed group of people who offer support and challenge as part of the effective leadership of the school.  Their role is to oversee the way that the school is run, ensuring that the children get the best education possible and that it fulfils all statutory responsibilities.  


Nigel Turner: Chair of Local Committee

I joined the Local Committee in November 2017. I previously lived in South Park for many years and know Sandcross for the excellent school it is, so when I had the chance to join the governing body I readily took the opportunity. Recently retired from teaching, I now have more time to devote to Sandcross in my position as Chair, and look forward to working with our new Headteacher Mr Richards, in making our school even better. I attend St Luke’s Church and I am father to three ‘adult’ children. For my sins I support Leicester City FC.
