 What do the management committee do?

The Management Committee is the governing body for all Newham PRUs Provisions. This includes Tunmarsh School and New Directions PRU. Newham PRUs Management Committee plays a strategic and advisory role in exercising statutory functions, including those delegated to them by LBN. 

They work closely with LBN in setting a strategic framework for the PRUs. 

This strategic framework: 

  • Sets out appropriate aims and objectives; 
  • Identifies and includes policies, targets and priorities; 
  • Sets out arrangements for monitoring and reviewing aims, objectives and whether the policies, targets and priorities are being achieved. 

The Management Committee is informed by the Headteacher and Leadership Team before taking their own decisions. 

Working strategically, Management Committee members then use monitoring evidence to review and evaluate progress against any targets set to see whether a policy is working or needs changing. 

There are 4 meetings of each Committee every Academic Year: 

  • Full Management Committee - Chair: John Bradshaw OBE
  • Finance, Staffing and Premises Sub Committee - Chair: John Bradshaw OBE
  • Teaching, Learning, Behaviour and Welfare Sub-Committee - Chair: Chris Kersse

 

The Management Committee plays a strategic and advisory role in setting out and maintaining the vision, aims and objectives of Newham PRUs on behalf of / in conjunction with LBN. 

This is to ensure that all pupils are safe, have their needs met, make appropriate progress and receive a good standard of education. 

Statutory functions of the Management Committee include: 

  • compliance with financial, employment, Health and Safety law etc. 
  • deciding the curriculum to offer
  • deciding the times of school sessions
  • overseeing any exclusions.
