Our Governing Board has two main committees which meet half termly:
This committee oversees the school budget & financial processes ; allocating money for salaries, heating, repairs, maintenance and the day to day running expenses of the school. Many of these costs are fixed externally, so managing the others is a complex and skilled “juggling act”.
The committee is responsible for staffing and personnel issues. It oversees the appointment of staff, and ensures all personnel procedures are implemented. It regularly reviews the staffing structure of the school.
Is responsible for ensuring the premises are in a good state of repair and the grounds well maintained. It also has the responsibility of regularly carrying out safety checks to make sure that the school is complying with the relevant aspects of Health and Safety legislation.
At our Full Governing Board meetings -held twice termly- we review curriculum, standards, learning, community as well as following areas:
- We oversee the delivery of the National Curriculum and learning within the school.
- We reviews school policies on such things as sex & relationship education and makes sure that the requirements of children with disabilities/special needs (DSEN) are met. Key areas such as equality, anti-bullying and anti-racism are also part of the JG govs remit.
- THr JG Governinig Board implements channels of communication between the parents, school and community, and deals with all aspects of areas concerning parents/carers.
The GB also has specific need for other committees to carry out specific governance activities for example Pay committee, Employee Grievance Committee or Pupil Discipline Committee. These will meet only when, and as, required.
As well as these committees, working groups may be set up to work in a specific area, reporting to the full Governing Body. e.g. inclusion & equality.
