Committees: How We Work
To manage the business of the Board efficiently and to make best use of the many skills and expertise of our governors, some of the work of the Full Governing Board (FGB) is delegated to committees. This allows more time to discuss important issues at main meetings, whilst specialist issues can be discussed at Governing Board usually meets once each term.
Each committee reports fully to the Full Governing Board through its agenda / minutes and we work through three sub committees:
Personnel – the Board employs all staff who work in the school and this committee needs to ensure that all of the responsibilities of employment are met.
Current chair (2017-18) Lynne Evans
Finance, Premises, Health & Safety – recommends the annual budget to the Board of Governors, monitors expenditure against budget throughout the year and advises the FGB on health and safety and the maintenance and development of the school premises.
Current chair (2018-19) Ben Pullenayegum
Teaching & Learning Standards – working with the Headteacher, sets the school’s statutory attainment targets for approval by the Board; monitors pupil-performance across the school; and reviews the implementation of statutory policies. This sub-committee also ensures that all pupils of the school receive high quality support in all aspects of school life, sets associated policies and strategies and overseas safeguarding.
Current chair (2017-18) Imogen Hall
In addition to the sub committees, we have a small panel which undertakes delegates work from the FGB but is not a formal sub committee.
Admissions Panel– Ensures the Admissions Policy meets statutory and diocesan requirements, grades applications received from the local authority in accordance with the Admissions Policy and puts in place arrangements for any appeals.
Current chair (2018-19) Jaime Goumal
