Trustees of Royal School for the Deaf Derby
David du Celliee Muller (Chair), Alan Castledine, Lynn Senior, James Richardson
Over the past year Trustees have worked in close partnership with the Charities Commission to mirror the increased transparency and accountabilities of the School within the wider charities group. As part of an agreed action plan a simplified structure is now established incorporating a newly formed Charitable Incorporated Organisation (RSDD 2016 Property Trust) which effectively becomes the School's new landlord and the source of continued support.
The Trustees look for a breadth and depth of experience among their number in order to carry out their duties effectively and efficiently. When recruiting new trustees, the Board looks for enthusiasm for the work of the school as well as appropriate knowledge and experience. Recruitment effort has centred on networking within the local business and educational community, having identified the need to strengthen the educational and financial expertise. With this in mind, the Board has been delighted to recently add to its number Lynn Senior (Dean of Education at Derby University) and Alan Castledine (Chartered Accountant). In addition to external trustees training opportunities, Board members can also benefit from attending the broad range of training events which the school offers to its staff.
