Attendance & Minutes

The Full Governing Board (FGB) meets once or twice  a term.   At these meetings the governing body carries out its three core functions, as identified by the Department for Education in the Governance Handbook:

  • ensuring clarity of vision, ethos and strategic direction
  • holding the headteacher to account for the educational performance of the school and its pupils, and the performance management of staff
  • overseeing the financial performance of the school and making sure money is well spent.

The governing board regularly reviews its way of working. Some of its work is delegated to committees.   From 2.12.21 there are now two main committees: the Quality of Education Committee (remit here) and the  Finance, Premises and Personnel Committee, remit here.   Under the terms of the teacher's pay policy a pay committee may also sit, annually but for 2020 its work was  undertaken by the full governing board. There is also a Safeguarding and Inclusion working group and the scope of its work will be shown here once fully approved by the Board.

The  Chair of Governors is Jenny Perrin and may be contacted at Jennyperrin@hertfordjun.brighton-hove.sch.uk  .

Minutes of the Hertford Federation Governing Board and FPP committee, providing they are not confidential, will be shown here once they have been approved by the Board at the following meeting.  The minutes include the names of governors present at the meeting.  Other minutes and some agenda papers may also be available if they are not confidential.  Please address such requests to the clerk to governors at janetjohnson@hertfordjun.brighton-hove.sch.uk .
