Performance and Standards
This committee is responsible for monitoring how well pupils at Milverton achieve and make progress, as well as discussing with the school all the policies which set out what children will be taught at school – this includes relationships and sex education, special educational needs, and extra-curricular activities.
We also keep an eye on policies which affect everyone’s life at school, like race equality and equal opportunities, and the home-school agreement. The committee works with the school to keep the prospectus accurate, attractive and up-to-date. We monitor attendance, and keep under review the progress the school is making in enabling children to stay safe, be healthy, enjoy and achieve, make a positive contribution, and eventually to achieve economic well being. We also review the school’s child protection policy and procedures annually.
Chair: Hannah Stephenson
