Sent on behalf of Paul Randall, Chair and Anne Sheddick, Vice Chair of the BASG
As I discussed at last week’s Briefings BASG and Buckinghamshire Council have been working on a suggested agenda and information sheet, to support your work as governing boards during the Spring Term, whilst trying to stay up to date with current information. The DfE had even updated guidance late on Friday!
We have taken a slightly different approach to providing support for Governing Board agenda items this term, and we are aware that the attached document is extensive, but we have based it on current information provided by the LA, NGA, The Key and the DfE. It is intended to be an option to support your work as Boards throughout the term and it is not being suggested that you try and cover all aspects in one meeting.
We anticipate that Chairs, Heads and Clerk’s will liaise with each other to select the items relevant for their specific meeting agendas throughout the term.
Dependant on your own board’s governance structures, work carried out between meetings by designated governors, can then be reported back during the term, according to the need and individual school priorities.
BASG continue to remain an independent and voluntary run organisation to support all governors across Buckinghamshire and hope that you find the attached information supportive.
