Governor Roles and Meeting Attendance


Governor roles and meeting attendance 2019/20

Each governor is a member of at least one committee. The entry indicates the number of meetings attended during the academic year 2019/20 (the number in brackets indicates the possible number of meetings). During the period there were three extraordinary meetings called relating to the appointment of a Headteacher and Deputy Headteacher. Staff Governors (Alex Duke and Nicola Taylor) did not attend these meetings and Jenny Maraspin did not attend the two relating to Headteacher appointment. This has been reflected in the possible number of meetings.
