Full Governing Body (FGB) meetings

The full governing body meets once a term. At these meetings, the governing body carries out its three core functions, as identified by the Department for Education in the Governors' Handbook:

  • ensuring clarity of vision, ethos and strategic direction
  • holding the headteacher to account for the educational performance of the school and its pupils, and the performance management of staff
  • overseeing the financial performance of the school and making sure money is well spent.

The current Chair of Governors is Helen Johnson and the Vice Chair is Nigel Lecky. Minutes are published here, once they have been agreed by the governing body at the following meeting. 

Some functions are delegated to committees. Brunswick Primary School has two committees and the minutes will be published here.
