Committee minutes

Holly Park

The Governing Body of Holly Park meets once every term for a full governing body meeting . This meeting is usually in the second half of each term. The full governing body meetings are minuted by a clerk.

Full governing body meetings are always preceded by some governor training. This training is done by members of school staff  or by advisors invited in because they have a specialism. Examples of previous training have been – Safeguarding, school data, the role of the governing body, SEN, the Learning Skills etc

The governors also have five sub committees which meet once a term usually in the first half of each term. Minutes of these meetings are circulated to all governors and items from the committees are taken to the full governing body for further discussion or clarification. Each governor is usually a member of two sub committees, although any governor can attend any sub committee. Each committee has its own terms of reference which are reviewed annually and can be read below.
