The Vine Schools Trust - We Need You!

The Vine Schools Trust is a multi-academy trust responsible for 23 primary schools across 460 parishes in Essex.

We are actively seeking volunteers from a wide range of professional backgrounds to join our experienced Tendring South Local Schools Board (LSB), responsible for local governance in three of our schools:

  • St Osyth Church of England Primary School
  • Mistley Norman Church of England Primary School
  • Two Village Church of England Primary School

The role of an LSB member is really important in supporting the strategic direction of our schools. The role is challenging but it is rewarding to know that you have really contributed to the education of the pupils and the schools as a whole.

Your commitment would be to attend two meetings per term plus any training sessions. Meetings take place via Microsoft Teams at the moment due to Covid-19 restrictions. Outside of these meetings, you would be very welcome to attend as a guest at school events and on visits to see the schools in action. There is no payment for the role (other than claiming expenses), but there is immense satisfaction to be gained by contributing to the education of young people in our community.

We very much appreciate the time given so willingly by our LSB members. If you are interested in registering your interest or finding out more about the role, please contact our Governance Lead, Tosca Boothman (
