This was a very in depth meeting with the main priority being the 2016/2017 school budget.  Our funding from the government has been cut and this makes things very tight for us over the next year.  There will be additional meetings to discuss areas where we can save money, reduce costs and postpone any non-essential projects. 

We had a discussion about the way in which the School Improvement Plan is written each year and we decided to set up a working party to work on improving the format.  This group will consist of Mr Butcher, Mr Jones and Mr Bishop.  They will report back to the governing body with their suggestions.

 

Mr Malcolm informed us that following an audit on equality, we now need to pull this together with an action plan and create and Equality Scheme.  Equality, diversity, cultural diversity and British values are in the School Improvement Plan and a working party will look into producing some equalities objectives.  This group will be made up of Mr Malcolm, Mrs Lomer, Mrs Riley and Mr Butcher.

We approved the non-pupil days for the next school year.  These are days where pupils do not come into school and staff undertake training and reviews of the national curriculum.  The non-pupil days for the 2016-2017 school year are:

Thursday 1st September

Friday 2nd September

Thursday 5th January 2017

Friday 6th January 2017

Tuesday 18th April 2017

The Child Protection Policy was reviewed and updated.

We reviewed a number of governor monitoring reports from school visits, and training reports.  Mr Butcher and mr Bishop have completed their Governor Induction training.

How did this meeting help the school? 

Governors summarised that they had approved a budget that will prioritise the needs of the children, assigned new governors to committees and monitoring areas, highlighted the school's excellent SEN provision, and agreed to look at the school's strategic vision.
