Governors

Information about our governing body

The structure and remit of the governing body:

We have two sub-committees which meet at least once a term. There is the Finance, Staffing and Strategic Development committee (FSSD) which monitors the financial management of the school and oversees any resource purchasing, management of staff and development in school. There is also the Pupil, Policy and Curriculum Development committee (PPCD) which monitors all issues related to pupil progress and welfare and oversees the management of the schools ethos and provision; including the impact of SEN, Pupil Premium and Sports Premium funding on pupils.

Committee structure and membership:

Each committee has a chair and vice chair. Governors are only required to sit on one committee but some choose to sit on both committees. Or if new governors will attend both committees before deciding on which area of school to support. Committee remits can be found here:

Information about our associate members:

Associate members are not governors but may be appointed by the governing body to sit on committees. They have the right to attend full governing body meetings and receive the agenda and other paperwork, but do not have any voting rights at FGB meetings. However, the governing body can choose to assign them voting rights at committee level, subject to a small number of statutory restrictions. Associate members are not listed in the instrument of government.

Attendance has been calculated based on 6 meetings per year : 3 governing body and 3 committee. This is approximately 17% per meeting.
