Governors' meetings

Governing Body meetings

The full governing body 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 Co-Chairs of Governors of the Hertford Federation are Tracey Hill and Jenny Perrin.  Minutes are published here, if they are not confidential, once they have been agreed by the governing body at the following meeting. Minutes include attendance by governors.

Non confidential minutes from Hertford Junior School meetings can be found below.  Non confidential minutes of Hertford Federation meetings are currently being reviewed and will be published once agreed. Minutes include attendance by governors.
