Minutes:

­­Governors considered a report of the Town Clerk regarding the annual review of their terms of reference. Governors agreed to change point 4. (c) to refer to the “Head” in place of “Headmaster/Headmistress”.

 

Governors discussed the benefits of holding an additional meeting in May given the large gap between meetings in the spring, however, it was felt that this was not an issue given the Board’s ability to hold extraordinary meetings when required.

 

RESOLVED – that:

 

·         paragraph 4(c) of the terms of reference be revised to read “Head” in place of “Headmaster/Headmistress”;

 

·         the revised terms of reference be approved for submission to both the Policy and Resources Committee and the Court of Common Council; and

 

·         any further changes required in the lead up to the Court’s appointment to Committees be delegated to the Town Clerk in consultation with the Chairman and Deputy Chairman.
