Bradfields Academy

Committee & Full Board of Trustees Meetings

Student Needs and Curriculum Committee 

This committee meets 3 times a year.  It is responsible for all matters concerned with both the pastoral curriculum and academic curriculum.  The committee will receive briefings from lead members of the academy's management team and consider the detail so as to determine both the impact of curriculum provision and the value for money of any expenditure on resources.

This may involve a 'Task and Finish' group of 2 trustees visiting the Academy to look closely at a particular topical area to inform their judgement of impact and value for money.  This task is usually performed in liaison with one of the Vice or Assistant Principals.  They will provide a written report which is then submitted to the committee and Full Trustee Body.

The Chair of the Student Needs and Curriculum Committee is Marian Wheeler.
