SJB Governing Body – Committee Structure

The Governing Body has the power to delegate certain of its duties to appointed committees. The structure and membership of these committees is agreed by the Governing Body.

The committees are responsible for doing the majority of the leg-work of the Governing body. Each committee is run by a Chair and the Headteacher sits on each of the committees.

Meetings are minuted so that their business and any decisions reached can be fed back in detail to the following meeting of the Full Governing Body. Committee meetings are quorate when three governors (which can include the Headteacher) are in attendance.

We have three committees:

Finance, Buildings and Personnel

Matt Lister (Chair)

Janet Heffernan

Rebecca Williamson

(Matt Connell - stand-in for HP, if required)
