As a Governing Body our three core functions are to:
· Ensure clarity of vision, ethos and strategic direction;
· Hold the Principal to account for the educational performance of the college and its pupils, and the performance management of staff; and
· Oversee the financial performance of the college and making sure its money is well spent.
Responsibility for the day to day management of the College rests with the Principal and the Executive Leadership Team.
Our Full Governing Body meets once every half-term. We have two main committees who meet once every half-term. They manage a large proportion of our work, as set out in their Terms of Reference, and report back to the Full Governing Body. They are:
· Teaching and Learning
We also have a Performance and Pay Committee who meet once per term and report back to the Full Governing Body as well as a number of other committees who only meet if the need arises (First (Hearings) Committee, Second (Appeals) Committee and Complaints) as well as our Principal’s Appraisal Panel (who meet twice per year).
Our Governing Body consists of 6 parents governors (elected by and from parents of registered pupils at the college), 3 staff governors (currently one teaching and two non-teaching members of staff elected by and from members of staff at the college), one co-opted governor (appointed by the Governing Body), the Principal and 6 appointed governors (members of our local community appointed by the other members of the Academy Trust).
