gOVERNOR'S COde Of CONDUCT
All governors are required to adhere to a strict code of conduct which sets out the expectations for anyone working in public life. Please click the link to read this document: Governor's Code of Conduct
Governors meet 9 times a year with meetings lasting around 2 hours. The Board of Governors all share responsibility for every aspect of the school's functioning including finance, curriculum and staffing. Our Board has no separate committees as we believe every governor must be involved in debating the issues and pressures facing the school at any one time. Where there is a need, extraordinary meetings may be called. In the past year, the Board of Governors has had to deal with some difficult issues and take challenging decisions which has led to us having an additional 8 meetings.
Governors are also invited to three training days across the year and these give an opportunity for governors development, time in school to meet pupils and professionals along with targeted training opportunities for governors in their roles. Both 'in person' and 'virtual' attendance is offered for governors and currently all meetings are held virtually.
Copies of meeting agendas, minutes and associated paperwork for the current and previous three academic years are available on request - please contact the Clerk as detailed below. Please be aware that any confidential paperwork and Part 2 minutes will be omitted.
