Governors' meetings


Full Governing Body (FGB) 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 Carl Chambers and Claire Taylor.  Minutes are published here, once they have been agreed by the governing body at the following meeting. 

Minutes from Hertford Junior School meetings can be found below.  Minutes of Hertford Federation meetings will be published once agreed.

Committee meetings 

Some functions are delegated to committees.  In 2016/17, Hertford Junior School had two committees: Finance, Premises, Health & Safety (FPHS) and Staffing & Learning.  From September 2017, the Hertford Federation has two committees: Curriculum, Standards & Diversity (CSD) and Finance, Personnel and Premises (FPP).  The minutes are listed below. 

Terms of Reference: CSD Committee 2017/18
Terms of Reference: FPP Committee 2017/18

Previous minutes are available on request.  Certain associated papers from the meetings are also available on request, although some will be confidential. Please contact the Clerk to Governors for further information: sharonmackenzie@hertfordjun.brighton-hove.sch.uk
