Each sub-committee meeting will be allocated 1.5 hours per meeting.  These will run consecutively CTL 6.00-7.30pm and RMC 7.30-9.00pm.  

Committees will work through the required activities together sharing out responsibilities but not needing an actual named governor for each area but with working party groups to cover the three parties annually identified on the School Improvement Plan.  However, named governors will have specific responsibility for the following:-

  • Safeguarding  - Mrs Kate Richardson
  • English - Mrs Kate Cross 
  • Maths - Mr Roger Farr
  • Science - Mrs Ashley Oates
  • Assessment and Data Management - Mrs Dionne Barton
  • Health & Safety - Mr Roger Farr
  • P.E. - Mr Graham Robertson
  • SEN - Mrs Hazel Marlow
  • Pupil Premium - Mr Graham Robertson
  • Behaviour - Mr Graham Robertson

The role of coming into school to observe lessons, speak with co-ordinators and carry out learning walks will be able to be taken by governors who have the opportunity to do so during the day.  Other governors who have work commitments who cannot get into school during the day, can take on other roles such as writing up pieces for the school newsletter, checking policies and the prospectus and carrying out questionnaires or surveys on behalf of the governors, analysing the results to feed back to sub and full committees.
