Governing Body Meetings

During each term there are four formal meetings of the the governing body:

 

Full Governing Body

Resource Management Committee (RMC)

Pay Committee 

Teaching and Learning Committee (TLC)

 

In addition to these meetings, governors will regularly visit school to monitor different aspects of the school, as well as form smaller working groups when we need to focus on particular projects.  

 

In addition to the formal committees, we have also set up a performance data working group that reports back to the Teaching and Learning Committee.  This working group focuses on analysing the attainment and progress our children are making throughout the year and making sure that everything possible is being done to help them reach their full potential.  

 

Detailed below you can see what is discussed by the full governing body and what areas are delegated to each committee.  You can also see which governors are members of each committee, their attendance during 2016/17 and you can download minutes of the meetings once they have been approved.  

 

You can also view the membership, attendance and minutes for our meetings during 2015/16 and 2014/15.

*It is important that the discussions held, and decisions made, by the governing body are recorded accurately and transparently so all meetings of the full Governing Body and the committees are minuted by clerks and minuting secretaries from the local authority's Governor Services team. Copies of the minutes are held within the school office.  We will also publish copies of the minutes for the current academic year on this page.  Minutes will be available once they have been approved by the chair. Any confidential items (usually relating to staffing matters) have been removed.
