Local  Committee


The Local Commitee is established by The MILL Academy Trust Board and  has three key functions in their relationship with the school: Support, Challenge and Champion. The functions, duties and proceedings of the Local Committee are set out in The MILL Academy Trust’s Scheme of Delegation and Terms of Reference. Each Local Committee volunteer plays an essential part in making sure that the committee as a whole works effectively. All Local Committee volunteers abide by a code of conduct which includes the seven principles of public life. 

The Local  Committee has three link volunteers for Safeguarding, Special Educational Needs and Disability and Grants such as  Pupil Premium.  The Local Committee meets three times a year.

The Chair of the Local  Committee will be voted on in March 2023. To contact the Local Committee please email their clerk: clerk@finstock.oxon.sch.uk.
