Committee's and Responsibilities 

 

Pre 2022-2023 the academy followed a model of two panel meetings per term followed by a Full Governing Board Meeting.  The format being as follows:

 

Accountability Panel One

 

Covers: Pupils, Parents & Curriculum (PPC)      Chair: Jessica Colson

 

Accountability Panel Two

 

Covers: Finance, Pay & Personnel (FP&P)           ChairAlex Raynor

 

Governors could be members of both panels or just one, but every Governor was expected to attend the Full Governing Board Meetings. Please see table below for 2021-2022 meeting attendance.

 

From 2022-2023 the local governing body is changing to a different format to maximise Governor input.

 

Termly Meeting One - Strategic Planning Meeting

Termly Meeting Two - Full Governing Body

Termly Meeting Three - Full Governing Body

 

Attendance at the Strategic Planning Meeting is required from members of the School Leadership Team ( Head Teacher, Deputy Head Teacher, Assistant Head Teacher and SENCo plus the Chair, Deputy Chair and Diocesan Governor)

 

Monitoring of Governor meeting attendance for 2022-2023 will be recorded in line with this structure. All items required by the Trust to be covered by governors each term will be managed across the two Full Governing Body meeting agendas.
