Academy Governors’ Meetings

By law, governing bodies must meet at least three times every year, as a Full Governing Body, but the on-going business is discussed by smaller committees.  All areas of the Academy’s work are discussed, reported on and decisions are taken by a majority vote.

A typical Governors’ meeting agenda might include:

  • Principal’s report and issues raised
  • Update on Personnel matters e.g. appointments made
  • Reports from the Committees: Pastoral, Curriculum, Personnel and Finance
  • Budget Monitoring
  • A review of recent and forthcoming Academy events and initiatives
  • Governor training
  • Any current key or current issues (e.g. academy status, Ofsted requirements)

At The Elizabethan Academy we have 2 sub-committees which meet at least once a term, and sometimes more frequently, if circumstances demand it. The committees are:

  • Finance, Risk and Audit
  • Quality of Education

In addition to the above subcommittees, the Finance, Risk and Audit committee have a sub committee to support the review of performance management outcomes including of the principal.

There is also a Governors’ Exclusion Committee (Discipline) which meets to discuss any permanent exclusion cases and has the power to reinstate an excluded pupil or to reduce the term of the exclusion.
