Decision Maker: Portfolio Holder for Children, Education and Families

Decision status: Recommendations Approved

Is Key decision?: Yes

Is subject to call in?: No

Decision:

1.  That the new Instrument of Government for St Olave’s & St Saviour’s Grammar School as set out in the report be approved.

2.  That the Instrument be made by the Common Seal of the Council of the London Borough of Bromley.

 

Reasons for the decision:

All maintained schools are required to review the effectiveness of their governing board on a regular basis by The School Governance (Constitution) (England) Regulations 2012 as amended by the School Governance (Constitution and Federations) (England) (Amendment) Regulations 2014.  In doing so, Governing Boards are asked to take the opportunity to consider their effectiveness by means of a skills audit, decide whether the number of posts might be reduced or increased.  For community schools, staff governors, including the head teacher, may not exceed one third.

The Governing Board must include:

at least two Parent Governors;

the Head Teacher unless the headteacher resigns as a governor;

one Staff Governor;

one Local Authority (LA) Governor.

In addition, the Governing Board may appoint as many co-opted governors as they consider necessary; and as this is a VA school the Foundation Governors must outweigh the number of all other governors by two.
