Ham Dingle Primary School
Welcome School Logo School Crest



Ham Dingle Primary 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:

  • Ensuring clarity of vision, ethos and strategic direction;
  • Holding the executive leaders to account for the educational performance of the organisation and its pupils, and the effective and efficient performance management of staff; and
  • Overseeing the financial performance of the organisation and making sure its money is well spent.

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.

Local Governance of Ham Dingle Primary School

At Ham Dingle Primary School our Local Governance is provided by a School Improvement Board.

 This is an interim form of governance following our transition to academy status.

The transition period will see the formation and training of a new Local Governing Body

serving the Trust Board of United Learning.


School Improvement Board (SIB) members are effectively our Governors at Ham Dingle.


The Chair of the SIB is Mr George Craig who is a National Leader of Governance.
