Management Committee

Kite Ridge School is governed by a management committee of 14 members, chaired by Susie Burrage. The committee is made up of one parent member, one local authority member, three staff members, seven community members and two sponsor members. Each MC member sits for a term of four years.

The members are divided into several sub committees with specific responsibilities for certain areas – Education & Care, Finance & Staffing and Health & Safety and Premises. The full management committee as well as the sub committees meet three times a year, once per term.

Individual management committee members also hold separate responsibilites such as safeguarding, training or pupil premium.
