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.    Since the school year 2018/19 one main committee has been agreed: the Finance committee, now known as Finance, Premises and Personnel Committee, and its delegated powers are set out in its terms of reference.  Under the tems of the teacher's pay policy a pay committee may also sit, annually but for 2020 its work was expected to be undertaken by the full governing board.  In September 2020 it was decided to add the Safeguarding and Inclusion working group and the Teaching and Learning working group.  The scope of their work will be shown here once fully approved by the Board.

The acting Chair of Governors is Jenny Perrin.

Minutes of the Hertford Federation Governing Board and its committees, 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 .
