In addition to attending meetings:-
(i) Governors are also “linked” to members of the Senior Leadership Team and meet 3 times each year to:
- To understand the role and responsibilities of the SLT member
- To consider any relevant issues that have been raised during Full Governing Body or Team meetings
- To identify any areas which may be valuable to enhance governors knowledge – this may include attendance at and observation of relevant meetings
- To seek advice from SLT member on areas of work that would benefit from governor support or challenge
(ii) At least twice per annum Governors have ‘Shadow A Student’ week whereby they attend classes with a student. These are designed to improve governor understanding of the college whilst also gaining an understanding of the pupil experience.
