Our governors meet under 3 different committees:
Personnel, Premises, Finance, Health & Safety (PPFHS) Committee;
Curriculum, Standards & Improvement (CSI) Committee;
Full Governing Body (FGB) Committee.
The PPFHS Committee maintains an overview of the school finances. They meet with the school bursar to review the start budget, usually in March or April, and review the monitoring reports monthly. Additionally, the committee reviews benchmarking information (a comparison of our schools against like schools) to ensure the best use of school finances. They also prepare and return the school's financial audit yearly.
This committee also maintains and overview of health and safety including an overview of premises. The health and safety governor conducts a tour of the school termly and these reports are audited by the NYCC School HandS service.
Additionally, this committee maintains an overview of recruitment, staff appraisal and staff welfare. They consider pay progressions in October.
The CSI Committee maintains an overview of standards and progress in the school. They meet termly to review the assessment data and look at the school's published data (SATs results, ASP and FFT) annually.
This committee also looks at the pupil premium and sports premium spend; looking at the effectiveness and the impact of this spending.
SEND is considered within this committee, with the SEND governor meeting termly with the SENCo to review the provision for children with SEND.
Finally, this committee reviews the school's self evaluation and the school improvement plan.
These committees then share this information at the full governing body meetings.
