Change to the Constitution of the Governing Body
Governors have held their final full meeting of 17/18. As you will be aware we have successfully filled one parent governor vacancy this year, but unfortunately have carried another since February. Ways to strengthen our board and return to full numbers has been extensively explored. It was unanimously agreed at our meeting to reshape our constitution and go forward with 3, not 4 parent governor positions, however balance this with an extra co-opted role.
We are delighted that subsequent to this change, we unanimously co-opted Peter Taylor to our board. He brings a wealth of business experience and has previously strong links with schools through his work. Peter’s grandchildren are current pupils at Ashton and Pat, his wife, is a regular school volunteer helper. We are confident Peter will be a real asset to the school and hope you will join with us in welcoming him.
