Board and Committee Structure
The Board of Governors meets formally four times a year for the purpose of supervising the running of the Foundation and providing it with strategic direction. To assist in achieving the aims and objectives of the Charity the Governors have formed four principal committees: Care, Community Benefit, School and Finance and Audit – each of which has the power, subject to Board approval, to add three co-opted members with particular expertise relevant to the business of that committee. In addition, an Investment sub committee exists to monitor the performance of the Foundation’s external investment fund manager; and a Nominations committee reviews the skillset of the board and identifies and recommends the appointment of new Governors.
The Foundation’s Free Schools are the responsibility of the Seckford Education Trust, a separate charity which reports to the Governors.
