Governor Appointments

Report of the Director of Community and Children’s Services.

Minutes:

Members had before them the report of the Director of Community and Children’s Services on governor appointments.

 

The following matters were raised:-

 

·         In response to a question from a Member about the terms of reference of the CoLAT Local Governing Bodies (LGBs) it was suggested that for reasons of clarity the word ‘nature’ be substituted by ‘composition’ where the wording referred to a CoLAT LGB being varied in exceptional circumstances to allow for addition of missing skill sets.  The Director of Community and Children’s Services confirmed that CoLAT would be informed of this view.

 

·         The Chairman confirmed his intention to step down from the governing body of City of London Academy Islington after November and that the Deputy Chairman had also stood down.

 

·         A broader discussion took place on the appropriate number of CoL governors across City schools bearing in mind the key skills required by schools and the pool of members able to be governors. It was agreed to discuss this and wider governance matters at the Education Board Away Day in March. 

 

RESOLVED – That

 

(a)  the appointment of Rachel McGowan as Chairman of Newham Collegiate Sixth Form local governing body be approved;

 

(b)  the appointment of Sukhi Bath and Martin Gaskell to Newham Collegiate Sixth Form local governing body be noted;

 

(c)   the CoLAT Board of Trustees recent update to its trust-wide terms of reference for local governing bodies be noted; and

 

(d)  the members of the City schools’ governing bodies set out in appendix 1 be noted.
