All governing boards, no matter what type of schools or how many schools they govern, have four core functions:
In our school the full board meet once every half-term and are supported by two committees, both of which have delegated authority. These are the Resources Committee, which monitors the school finances, and the Teaching and Learning committee, focussing on standards and attainment. Any work undertaken by the committees is reported back to the full board.
In addition the board has a pay and performance committee, which meets three times a year, with delegated responsibility for ensuring that staff appraisal is appropriately carried out.
There are two further committees which only meet if there is a need for them to do so. These committees are convened to consider any formal proceedings, such as a staff disciplinary issue or the permanent exclusion of a pupil.
There are also terms of reference for our safeguarding governors and for our Headteacher appraisal panel.
The terms of reference for each of these committees explains what delegated authority the committee has been given to make decisions on behalf of the board. The terms of reference can be found below:
