DMS - Local Governing Body (LGB)
Dorchester Middle School is part of the Wessex Multi Academy Trust (WMAT), a single entity established to undertake a strategic collaboration to improve and maintain high educational standards across a number of schools. DMS has its own Local Governing Body (LGB) which is a committee of the WMAT Board of Directors.
Our Local Governing Body consists of a group of enthusiastic and committed people who volunteer to work in partnership with the school leaders to shape the future of the school, to decide the key issues that will help staff to raise standards and to determine how the school will best spend its money. The LGB also assigns Link Governors to work across the key areas of the school to achieve these aims. We regularly review the skills set, training needs and experience of the LGB to ensure effective governance of the school.
Members of the DMS Local Governing Body are:
