The Finance & Personnel committee oversees the financial management of the school and makes sure that it operates within budget and makes the most effective use of the funds it receives from the County Council.  The Committee helps the Head Teacher to set a 3 year plan of projected income and expenditure and also advises on policies relating to financial matters such as the School’s Lettings Policy.  Other roles include overseeing the appointment of all staff in the school, their professional development and their well-being. To do this we discuss the school’s policies related to personnel including behaviour and attendance policies, equal opportunities policies relating to staff and pupils, anti-bullying and child safeguarding policies.
