Work of the Board

The Board of Governors receives reports from senior staff and external information from specialists to be able to undertake its decision-making, monitoring, policy and assurance roles.  The Board and its committees agree policies by majority vote that must be followed by the College.  Governors will visit the College during the working day from time to time to meet with senior leaders and to experience the work going on in the College.

The Clerk to the Governors will prepare and issue agendas and minutes and ensure communication between Board members is maintained.  

The Governing Body will also convene panels of usually three governors to consider complaints, exclusions, disciplinary matters and appeals as they arise ensuring that governors sitting on the panel do not have any prior involvement or conflict of interest with the specific matter being considered. 

The Clerk holds records of all Declarations of Pecuniary Interest. Governors must undergo a DBS check. 

The Governing Body is responsible for all matters but has adopted a Scheme of Delegation and a Code of Conduct following the National Governors Association models.
