The work of the governing body
There are three termly meetings and three interim meetings each academic year. The termly meetings address the LA agenda, which include national and local issues and priorities. Interim governor meetings focus on curriculum, inset and school based issues.
Governors have established working committees, which meet prior to Governors meetings. These include; Learning, Assessment & Achievement Committee, Behaviour & Safety Committee and Leadership & Management Committee. The committee structure allows more opportunity for governors to actively focus and contribute to the monitoring and evaluation process.
