Local Monitoring Council


At Lynsted and Norton Primary School we have a Local Monitoring Council (LMC). It consists of the Headteacher, a member of staff, a parent and other interested parties. 

The LMC provides challenge to the Headteacher using the published School Development Plan (SDP) as a basis for monitoring.

Designated link governors from the LMC meet with accountable leaders to triangulate, challenge and monitor progress.

OCMAT offer generic policies for its schools, which are reflected on this website. The individuality of each school’s context means there may be occasions when a school needs to include appendices to the main policy document in line with its own context. As a Trust, we continually review all our policies. Please click on the link above to view OCMAT Policies.
