Dunottar 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 2019 identifies the essentials of effective governance as follows:
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.
A Local Governing Body (LGB) is in place at Dunottar School. This body reviews local issues and meets with the Headmaster and other staff as necessary. The Chair of the Local Governing Body is Andy Porteous.
Any correspondence for the Chair of the LGB should be sent to the Dunottar School office.
