Meet Our Management Committee
Welcome to the section of our website where you can find out more about the management committee of Milton Keynes Primary PRU, and the work that we do. The Management Committee is the equivalent of a “Governing Body”.
Our main role is to support the Headteacher and the staff –this role is often called being a ‘Critical friend’. We help them to set and reach targets and to strive for excellence across the whole spectrum of school life. The two key documents used for this are the School Improvement Development Plan (SIDP) and the Self Evaluation Form (SEF). The SIDP sets out a plan for the school, with targets that everyone works towards and the SEF sets out how well the school is doing and where we aim to make improvements. We also have a 5 year Strategic Development Plan which is linked to our 5 year Strategic Financial Plan.
We are committed to providing an optimal learning environment for all pupils to enjoy during their time at our school and become successful, independent learners.
Legal Duties for the Management Committee
setting strategic direction, policies and objectives
approving the school budget
reviewing progress against the school's budget and objectives
appointing, challenging and supporting the Headteacher
From 1 September 2015 it is statutory for maintained schools (including Pupil Referral Units) to publish governor pecuniary interests on their websites. This information is found below for members of our Management Committee.
There are no recorded pecuniary interests.

Mrs Wendy Steer
Wendy Steer’s journey into education was because she wanted to be able to bring to the Governor's Board a parental perspective/voice. Hopefully other parents/carers will feel that they have a voice (albeit through her) to help to provide a successful model in the PRU to assist their children to get back into mainstream or, if necessary, a pathway into specialist schooling. She is working with other Governors to ensure that the PRU provide the best, both educationally and socially and emotionally for all children who enter the PRU.
Wendy’s specialisms are a background in Accountancy and Business. She has had personal and professional experience of dealing with children with Special Educational Needs.
She is currently employed part-time with Royal Mail and has worked as a lunchtime supervisor and cover Teaching Assistant within Milton Keynes. Wendy also has experience working in business and accountancy.
Her educational philosophy is that every child regardless of disability, ethnic background or social background has a right to access quality mainstream or specialist education.
Wendy’s ambition/ aspiration is to give children the same opportunities that she had and allow them to fulfil to their best ability.
In her spare time she enjoys reading and spending time with her own children. She is also an active member on a local Primary School's PTA.
