  • Ensuring clarity of Vision, Ethos and Strategic Direction.
  • Holding the Head Teacher to account for the educaitonal performance of the School.
  • Overseeing the financial performance of the school and making sure it's money is well spent.

A Finance and Resources Sub - Committee also meets at least every half term.

TERMS OF REFERENCE – approved at the Full Governing Body Meeting 22nd October 2018

The Governing Body or committees may establish other groups such as a working party or a task group, to look at a specific matter. These are less formal than committees and do not have delegated authority. Any such group must report back to the Governing Body or originating committee on its work and is usually disbanded once its work has been completed.
