The DBE fulfils its responsibilities in relation to the appointment and removal of foundation governors in line with its vision for schools: to promote a holistic, values based education that is deeply Christian, servicing the common good.

This form should be used for foundation governor nominations. The recommendation may be for a new appointment or a recommendation that an individual whose term is expiring continues for another term. In both instances all questions should be answered as fully as possible.

The applicant will be notified of the outcome by letter after the next scheduled DBE Committee meeting. New foundation governors are appointed subject to a satisfactory application being made to the Disclosure and Barring Service for a criminal records certificate. This is undertaken by the school.

The appointment is also conditional on the completion of the LDBE induction course for both new appointments and re-appointments within 6 months of receiving the conditional letter of appointment.
