Responsibilities

Full Governing Body

Ms Victoria Barlow

The school’s governing body is responsible for working with the school to ensure it delivers a good quality of education. It works together with the Headteacher, who is responsible for day to day management of the schools, to set the school aims and policies.

The key roles of the governors are:-

To ensure clarity of vision, ethos and strategic direction

To hold the Headteacher to account for the educational performance of the school and its pupils

To oversee the financial performance of the school and make sure its money is well spent

Education Committee

Mrs Lesley Steers

The Education Committee is responsible for helping to ensure the school provides high quality teaching and learning, leading to the highest possible levels of progress and attainment for all pupils. The committee reviews pupil progress and attainment and teaching and learning policies. The committee is responsible for monitoring the progress of different groups of children within the school, including those with special educational needs, those for whom English is not their first language, the high achieving, and those who are vulnerable. It also undertakes regular reviews to make sure the curriculum is broad and balanced, and in keeping with the school’s aims, pupil needs and statutory requirements

Operations Committee

Mr Shane Sorour

The Operations Committee has the responsibility to ensure that the school’s buildings and grounds are well maintained and provide a safe and suitable environment for the pupils and staff. The Operations committee also covers the governors’ Health and Safety responsibilities.

WAS Pay and Personnel Committee

 

The Operations Committee is responsible for advising on the school’s staffing structure; drafting and monitoring pay policies; monitoring staff induction and development; and staff performance management. The committee also makes recommendations about salaries, pay policy, awards and other personnel related costs, especially in relation to the annual budget. At each meeting the committee receives reports from the Headteacher on the management of school staffing and general personnel issues.

WAS Finance Committee

 

The Operations Committee is responsible for determining how funds available to the school will be spent. It sets annual budgets, ensuring they reflect the schools’ aims and development plans and support learning and teaching. As well as looking at future financial plans, they scrutinise income and expenditure, monitoring the budget throughout the year. The committee also ensures that all financial transactions are dealt with in accordance with approved procedures and that the recommendations arising from external audit are carried out.
