Minutes:

Governors considered a report of the Headmistress providing an update on health, safety and compliance matters at the City of London School for Girls and the following point was made:

 

  • The Independent Schools’ Inspectorate undertook a material change inspection of the School on 3 November 2021.  This had been a positive experience for the School which showcased its strong culture of ownership around compliance matters and the Inspector had recommended the Department for Education allow the School’s planned material change.  In response to a question from the Chairman, the Compliance Manager advised that Independent Schools did not qualify for the Government scheme to install carbon dioxide monitors in state-funded education settings.  Instead, the School had purchased and installed four carbon dioxide monitors across the Main School site as well as a portable monitor to take measurements in areas identified as being of concern.

 

RESOLVED, that the current position be noted.
