Blandford St Mary

Church of England Primary School

'Knowing we are loved, we learn and grow to be the best that we can be.'


Welcome to our Governors’ section.

We have a successful and supportive team of Governors at Blandford St Mary CE Primary School.


Please find below details of how our Governing body is structured, including the names, categories, responsibilities and terms of appointment for each Governor.

What is the Local Governing Board and what is its role?


The local governing board is a voluntary group, called the Academy Standards Committee, who carry out many of the functions of a governing body. The local Governors report to an overarching body called the Diocese of Salisbury Academy Trust Board (“DSAT”) which the School joined with effect from 1st January 2020. The local Governors are responsible for and monitor the impact and implementation of the School Improvement Plan by holding the School to account for its actions.


Together with the School the local Governors will promote high achievement in all curriculum areas so that children can accomplish the very best in all they do, in a safe and caring environment.


The Academy Standards Committee are bound by a Scheme of Delegation, Constitution and Terms of Reference. These documents provide the set of rules by which the local Governors abide in supporting DSAT to take responsibility for the School and a copy of this document is attached here.



More information about DSAT can be found on their website:




If you would like to contact the Chair of the Academy Standards Committee or its Clerk, please email or call into the school office and leave a request.
