Each school within the Foundation has two sub-committees, Each sub-committee is populated by local governing body members who are joined by non-voting associate members. An associate member is usually a member of staff with experience in a given area.
The sub-committees will hold to account the Principal and the Senior Leadership Team and will also ensure that best practice is effectively embedded. Both sub-committees report back to the Local Governing Body meetings.
