Meetings of the Governing Body

The GB meets formally three times per term. Once per term is a Full Governing Body (FGB) meeting at which the GB focuses on strategic matters and those matters requiring the formal consideration / approval of the FGB. Once per half term there is a committee meeting to which all governors are invited. Committee meetings are where the GB discharges its duties to hold the Head Teacher to account for the educational performance of the school and its pupils, and to oversee the financial performance of the school. The committee meeting in the first half of a term is chaired by the Resources Lead Governor, and the committee meeting in the second half of a term is chaired by the Education Lead Governor, but each committee meeting considers all aspects, allowing issues to be dealt with holistically.

In addition, the GB holds Educational Data Meetings, chaired by the Education Lead Governor, to conduct a detailed review of the data, and Pay Committee meetings, chaired by the Resources Lead Governor, to consider changes to pay policy and to conduct the annual pay review.

Below is the governors’ attendance record for meetings during academic year 2018/19.
