This was the first meeting in the new style with all business in one meeting. Previously there were a number of separate committees but due to our Academy status our Governors are a committee of the Trust. As a result of this change Mrs Johnson, Business Manager, has become a Governor. At the meeting attendance was discussed, due to a recent court ruling some alterations to policy will be made and then published to parents. We are waiting for SATs results then these will be fully discussed in the July meeting. The budget for 2016-17 was discussed and approved and suggestions were put forward for improving outdoor areas. Recent visits to school by individual Governors were shared with the full Governing body. Health and safety was discussed and when the latest audit is available it will be monitored in the meetings. Governing body business also has a part B which is confidential.
