Governors’ Minutes
The minutes of governor meetings are public documents and are open to be viewed
by any interested person.
The Governing Board has opted not to place its minutes on the school’s web site,
preferring instead to have them available in the school on request. We have taken
this approach as, by their nature, minutes are the written record of an official
proceeding. They are therefore not exhaustive records of everything that was said.
As a result, the Governors have a concern that reading the minutes in isolation,
without the ability to understand the context of the discussion, could be
misinterpreted.
Minutes are therefore available to be read at the school, where a member of the
senior staff or a member of the Governing Board could be available to answer any
questions or set the context of the material being discussed.
Note:
The Governing Board is not required to make available confidential minutes and
minutes which contain material relating to matters which, by reason of the nature, the
Governing Board is satisfied should remain confidential.
