Management Committee

The Management Committee fulfils both a strategic and an advisory role, in addition to having statutory responsibility for certain specific functions or tasks.  They are actively involved in most decision-making to ensure that Danesgate is run effectively and that we provide a suitable education our for learners.  Committee members will be from one of a number of categories including community members, parent members, staff members, and local authority members.  Local Authority Committee Members are nominated by the Executive Member at the council and appointed by the Management Committee and community members are appointed by the Management Committee.  Initial contact for the Management Committee should go through the school.

In 2017 we have adopted a new model of Governance at Danesgate and will be holding monthly Full Management Committee meetings, each with a specific focus.  The Management Committee may appoint associate members to serve on the committee; such members may have voting rights only as determined by the Management Committee and within the terms of the School Governance Roles, Procedures and Allowances Regulations 2013.  In addition the committee may also informally invite one or two people, on a non-voting basis, to provide specialist support.
