The governing body’s impact review is additional to the report and accounts for the year. Its review for the 2018/19 academic year will be published later this summer.
Update will be provided shortly.
Each governing body meeting includes a financial report, an update from the Headmaster on progress against the school development plan and an update from the four committees that oversee specific aspects of the school’s work and development:
- Finance and Resources committee – budgeting, site, health and safety
- Pupil committee – curriculum, admissions, attendance, attainment
- Personnel committee – staff appointments, appraisal, pay policy, equality, wellbeing
- Community committee – communications, marketing, parent and community relations, co-curricular, social enterprise.
These four committees meet at least once a term and report back to the main governing body. They are each chaired by a member of the main governing body, attended by the Headmaster and another governor, and co-opt in additional expertise for challenge and support – including parents, local business, clergy and primary school heads. In addition, a sports sub-committee meets termly to support and challenge the school in delivery of its sports programme.
2.2 Link governors
All areas of the school’s curriculum and co-curriculum are linked to individual governors, to help build informed and constructive partnerships between the school and governing body. Link governor visits provide 21 separate touch-points. The visits are used to check on progress against the school development plan, and for support and advice.
