Hertford Federation Governing Board

The Full Governing Board (FGB) meets once or twice  a term.   At these meetings the governing body carries out its three core functions, as identified by the Department for Education in the Governance Handbook:

  • ensuring clarity of vision, ethos and strategic direction
  • holding the headteacher to account for the educational performance of the school and its pupils, and the performance management of staff
  • overseeing the financial performance of the school and making sure money is well spent.

Some of its work is delegated to committees.  Prior to federating with the Junior School governing body in 2017 there were two committees: Curriculum Standards and Diversity (CSD) and Finance, Premises and Personnel (FPP).  After federating, both CSD and FPP committees continued but the CSD was disbanded in September 2018.   Since the school year 2018/19 there has been one main committee:  the finance committee and its delegated powers are set out in its terms of reference. Under the terms of the teacher's pay policy a pay committee also sits annually.

The Chair of Governors of the Hertford Federation is Jenny Perrin and the Vice Chair is Tracey Hill .

Minutes of the Hertford Federation Governing Board, providing they are not confidential, will be shown here once they have been approved by the Board at the following meeting.  The minutes include the names of governors present at the meeting.  Other minutes and some agenda papers may also be available if they are not confidential.  Please address such requests to the clerk to governors at office@hertfordjun.brighton-hove.sch.uk .
