**Concerns/Appeals Committee – Pool Membership (all governors except those employed in school in any capacity).

The Governing Board recognises its responsibility to be the final arbiter on all policy matters and decisions concerning the management of the school.

It is the Governing Board’s intention to delegate responsibilities adequately to a number of

Committees and to the Head and staff so as to ensure the most efficient and effective delivery of policy.

The Chair of the Committees to agree with the Head Teacher the agenda and send to members 1 week prior to the meeting.

The minutes of Committees will be presented to all Governors at the next full Governing Board meeting. Major decisions may be referred to the full Governing Board where full consultation is felt advisable.

The Governing Board has also established Working Parties without delegated powers to consider key issues with a view to recommending to full Governors a course of action.
