The National Church school system is managed and developed through individual dioceses. Each Diocese has a Diocesan Board of Education (DBE) which is served by a Diocesan Director of Education (DDE) who is the Chief Secretary and Officer of the DBE.
The role of Ely DBE is to oversee developments and support schools on a day to day basis. Members of the Board are either appointed by the Bishop or elected by Diocesan Synod, co-options are also possible.
The statutory remit of the DBE is encapsulated in the Diocesan Boards of Education Measure (1991) as amended by the Education and Inspections Act 2006.
Current elected members of the DBE are:
- Ven Dr Alex Hughes, Archdeacon of Cambridge (Chair)
