In September 2019 the governing bodies of the infant and junior schools were asked to consider providing Halal meat for school dinners. The schools set up a joint working party to investigate the feasibility of this change, and a consultation was sent to parents in October 2020. The summary of the results of the halal parent questionnaire can be found here.
Minutes of meetings
The constitution of the Governing Body is as follows:
The Headteacher, one staff Governor, parent Governors, Local authority Governors and co-opted Governors. It is important that there is a balanced representation across the Governing Body from each of these groups. Guidance from the DfE states: 'Governing bodies should be no bigger than necessary to secure the range of skills they need. Smaller governing bodies are likely to be more cohesive and dynamic. A key consideration in the appointment and election of all new governors should be the skills and experience the governing body needs to be effective. The skills they need are a matter for governing bodies to decide having regard to the Department’s Competency Framework for Governance.
