Westende Junior School Local Advisory Board

The role of the Local Advisors

Each school within The Circle Trust is managed by its own Local Advisory Board, which works closely with the Headteacher and the Senior Leadership Team to run the school in line with Department for Education guidelines.

The Westende Junior School Local Advisory Board consists of appointed individuals representing parents, teaching and non-teaching staff and the wider community.

It takes a strategic role in the running of Westende Junior School, helping direct the School’s aims and objectives, policies and putting in place targets to achieve whole-school improvement.

The Local Advisory Board acts as a ‘critical friend’ to the Headteacher by providing challenge, advice and support.

Local Advisors are all volunteers who give their time and expertise free of charge to ensure that Westende Junior School is run well, within budget and puts the needs and wellbeing of pupils and staff at the forefront.


The Chair of the Local Advisors, Jane Ainslie, can be contacted on or via the school address. You can contact any member of the Local Advisory Board via the Clerk by emailing:  or by the School Office on 0118 978 6682
