Governing Body

The Committee Structure 

The committee structures of Almondbury Community School are the outcome of discussions in the Governing Body with regard to reconstitution. 

  • The committee structure and membership are confirmed in the firstl meeting of the autumn term in preparation for the forthcoming academic year;
  • Each of the “standing committees” (Premises and Finance (Staffing), Standards and Curriculum, Community and Marketing  and Every Child Matters) is responsible, amongst other things, for the monitoring and evaluation of an identified aspect of the SIP
  • Whilst all governors should receive the agenda and minutes of all the committees, it would be expected that governors in the main would be members of no more than two committees (the exception would be the Chairs who would be members of three). However, it would be open to any governor to attend any committee meeting.
  • Membership of a committee should be 6 governors and have governors with primary and secondary experience.
