Sycamore Short Stay School Management Committee

We have a legally constituted Management Committee to support and challenge us. The Management Committee has the role and powers of a Governing Body but, as we do not provide for a mainstream group of pupils or solely for pupils with statements like a special school, the membership is slightly different. This page lists all the members and their category of membership. If you wish to contact one of the members please write to the clerk of the Management Committee, at Governor Support, Saltwells EDC, Bowling Green Road, Netherton, DY2 9LY marking your letter confidential if required. Alternatively you can email govsupport.cs@dudley.gov.uk and she will forward your email.

Please contact us if you are interested in joining our Management Committee.
