All schools in England have a ‘Governing Body’ which is responsible for overseeing many of the strategic decisions of the school. A key role is to act as a ‘critical friend’: to support, to challenge, to ask questions, ultimately to represent the school community.
The Management Committee (which acts the same as a Governing Body) works in close partnership with the head teacher, staff and the local authority. Whilst the head teacher is, of course, responsible for the day to day running of the school, the committee members are involved with such things as staffing, curriculum, school buildings and finance. It ensures the school functions well and maintains the proper range of academic and social objectives.
Who are we?
The Instrument of Government states that Roman Fields Management Committee should consist of a maximum of 13 Members, each with a term of office of four years:
1 Parent Members
3 LA Members
2 Staff Members
7 Community Members
The Chair and Vice-Chair are elected annually in May. The chair of the Management Committee is Mr. Eugene Billeter, who can be contacted via the school office or directly via email at firstname.lastname@example.org
The Management Committee meets termly. Much of the work of the Management Committee is done by two sub-committees that meet every term, two weeks prior to the main meeting.
At Roman Fields Provision, we have the following committees:
|Quality, Standards and Achievement||Its main purpose is to discuss and monitor all aspects of the school’s work around pupil attainment and progress, and ensuring that the school’s curriculum is broad and balanced and meets statutory requirements; it has various ‘link governors’ for English, Math’s, Science, Creative Arts, Behaviour and attendance, SEND, Autism& Citizenship, Child Protection, CLA and Safeguarding (although these may vary depending on the priorities set out in the School Development Plan).|
|Finance, Personnel and Premises||The main purpose of the committee is to discuss all aspects of the schools financial planning and ensure the school remains within budget and funds are spent wisely to meet the needs of the pupils; while it meets every term, there are additional review meetings with the schools local authority finance officer. Personnel and Premises including Health and Safety is also part of this committee remit.|
|Pay Committee||This meets every year following the staff performance management annual review to ensure that there is a fair and consistent approach.|
Message from the Chair of Management Committee
“On behalf of the Management Committee, I welcome this opportunity to briefly introduce you to the work the Management Committee undertakes to ensure that your son/daughter will receive a sound education.
The Management Committee has a range of powers and duties laid down by various Education Acts. In the main, these responsibilities relate to:
* Setting targets and promoting high standards of educational achievement.
* Setting the strategic framework within which the provision operates.
* Management of the school’s delegated budget.
* Ensuring that the curriculum for the provision is balanced and broadly based.
Committee members discharge the above responsibilities, together with many others, through a meeting each term. These formal meetings are supplemented by a series of informal sub-committee meetings dealing with more specific issues. A number of committee members also have responsibilities for specific issues within the school such as literacy, math’s and SEND.
Committee members adopt, review and monitor a range of policies that govern the operation of the provision including Health and Safety, Behaviour, Curriculum and Performance Management.
Roman Fields draws a unique strength on a genuine collaborative partnership between committee members, staff, SEN professionals, parents/carers and our young people; a partnership that has high aspirations for all and places the youngsters in our care at the heart of every decision.
The Management Committee is, therefore, rightly proud of the achievements of the provision, not only in terms of the results, but also in the solid foundations it provides in preparing all our pupils for their future.”
