The Management Committee

Welcome to the Saffron Valley Collegiate governance page.   As Chair of the Management Committee, the body legally responsible for the governance, I thought it would be useful to describe our role within the service. As a group, we support the professional leadership of the PRU, in fact a role similar to a governing body of mainstream school.

We currently attend, six formal meetings a year, and visit our allocated provisions within the collegiate regularly.

This enables us to:

  • Monitor the PRU’s performance under the OFSTED criteria:

Effectiveness of leadership

Quality of teaching, learning and assessment

Outcomes for pupils

Personal development, behaviour and welfare of pupils

  • Experience for ourselves the day to day challenges, and positive work being carried out across the PRU, through a dialogue with staff and pupils.
  • Support the performance management of the headteacher
  • Ensure value for money
