Our Local Advisory Committee

Thomas Bewick School has a Local Advisory Committee (LAC) who provide constructive support and challenge to school leaders, with the sole aim of ensuring that all aspects of our provision are of the highest quality.  Our LAC consists of education professionals, school staff, parents and members of the wider community, all of whom have a range of skills and expertise in different areas.
