Committees

The main working Committees are:

Curriculum

The Committee has responsibility for ensuring that the agreed broad curriculum is delivered in a way that is effective for all and accessible to all. The committee reviews the different subject areas with their staff co-ordinators and investigates performance and resourcing issues. The committee monitors overall performance trends in SATS results and is involved in the process of setting targets for future results with the Headteacher and the LEA.

Personnel

Technically the Governing Body is the employer of the teaching staff of the school and so this committee discharges the responsibilities of the Governing Body as an employer. The Committee advises the Governing Body on Staff structure and pay, participates in selection and oversees employee consultation, discipline and grievance processes.

Finance & Premises

This committee has the principal responsibility for Finance and the management of the school capital and revenue budgets. It is also responsible for maintaining and developing the school estate. This involves bidding for funding from the Diocese and the DfES and managing any projects that follow on from that. There are also all the usual premises related Health and Safety and Disability issues to deal with.
