Meet Our Management Committee

Ashley College has a Management Committee interested in key aspects of school life.  It is responsible for setting the vision and strategic direction of the school, holding the Head Teacher to account for its educational performance and ensuring that financial resources are well spent.

The Management Committee is made up of:  a Chair, a parent representative, a Local Authority representative, four community members and a staff representative.  The Head Teacher attends all meetings.

The Management Committee has delegated the oversight of school finances to a Finance Committee which reviews the annual budget, and ensures value for money.  It is also responsible for pay, personnel, health and safety and premises. A new Teaching and Learning Committee was set up in November 2015. The Committee has also appointed members to oversee specific areas of activity e.g. SEND.
