Governing Body meetings

As of September 2017 the governing body structure has been revised to ensure maximum efficiency and knowledge.  All governors are expected to attend all six meetings throughout the year.  In addition we also have a small resources committee which meets when required to meet the needs as defined in the terms of reference.
