Governing Body committee structure

Committee

Finance, Premises and Pay Committee 
The committee includes the headteacher and Finance Officer.  Until summer 2014 the finance officer was also a governor.  In autumn 2014 the governing body moved to a new constitution and the finance officer has been appointed as an associate member.  There are three other governors on the committee.  The quorum is any three governors (not associate members).  The committee’s remit includes health & safety and it has taken on the role of Pay Committee fairly recently.

Groups

Curriculum and Standards Group

This works very much like a committee and has become more formal, but it does not have any delegated powers, the minimum membership/quorum only includes two governors (plus staff) and it does not have a separate clerk (minutes are taken by the convenor).  Actual membership currently includes three governors.  The group meets once a term and minutes are presented to the governing body.

Special Educational Needs, including special unit

Safeguarding, Child Protection and Young People in Public Care

Community Group (including Additional Services, Children’s Centre, PSA)

The above three groups are smaller (about two governors, but could be just one governor) and less formal than the Curriculum and Standards Group.  The aim is for each group/individual to arrange a visit each term.  Specific remits are given by the governing body/headteacher to link to priorities in the School Development Plan.
