Blogmas Day 10: Meeting Prep for the Spring Term

Welcome to day 10 of Blogmas!  We’re now over halfway through the 2021 Blogmas series so I thought today we’d look ahead and start forward planning for the spring term.

Suggested standing items:

  • Welcome, apologies, declarations of interest
  • Minutes of the last meeting and matters arising
  • Headteacher/CEO report – to include attendance, staffing, school development plan (or equivalent) – review of progress to date, Covid update, GDPR etc.
  • Safeguarding and vulnerable groups
  • Governor monitoring visits and reports
  • Policies (as per policy review schedule)
  • AOB
  • Date of next meeting

Key areas to consider for the spring term – dependent upon your setting’s annual schedule of business:

  • HT mid-term performance management
  • Census data
  • School Financial Values Standard (SFVS) (maintained) 
  • S175 Safeguarding Audit 
  • If consultation has taken place on any proposed changes to the Admissions Policy, consider any feedback received and agree final admissions policy 
  • Publish the admission appeals timetable for 2022-23 on the school website  
  • Receive a finance report from the school business manager and ensure challenge is recorded 
  • Review and agree the salaries of teaching and support staff  

Coming up 

I hope you found today’s Blogmas post useful. Come back or subscribe to receive the next post of the Blogmas 2021 series directly to your inbox.
