Committees examine policies, papers and proposals in detail and monitor progress and activities during the year. They report on their own activity to the Board at the termly meetings.
Each committee has its own terms of reference (below) which define its remit and these are used, in conjunction with the programme of work, to form the agenda for each meeting.
The audit committee examines risk management, meets with internal and financial auditors and considers issues such as best value. The committee meets generally once a term and invites the principal and deputy principal to attend to answer questions.
