During the Academic Year 2016/17 no Governors have stepped down from the Governing Body.
There are six Full Governing Board/Finance Staffing and Audit/Pupil Learning meetings per Academic Year.
Attendance: Whilst Governors make every effort to attend meetings throughout the year, from time to time, apologies for non-attendance at meetings are received and are generally due to unforeseen circumstances, such as sickness or family/work commitments. Apologies are always accepted by the Governing Board/Committee. To ensure all Governors are kept up to date, regular communication and collaboration is made through the circulation of minutes, emails and, where necessary, verbal updates from colleagues.
There are two sub committees of the governing board- Finance, Staffing & Audit (FS) and Pupil Learning (PL). The members of these committees are as follows.
Finance, Staffing & Audit
Jayne Donovan (Chair)
Stephen Weeks (Chair)

Pupil Premium - Simon Dowland

Full Governing body meeting minutes are available on request.
