Minutes:

(1)       the Panel agreed to make the appointment of Mr D Horn to the governing body of John Mayne CEP School as it considered that, although his wife taught music at the school for 11/2 hours per week, this was not a sufficiently significant amount of time to constitute a conflict of interest.   It was agreed that the Governor Support Officer would write to Mr Horn explaining the Authorities expectations if any such conflict did arise.  

 

(2)       RESOLVED that the appointments of Authority Governors to Primary, Secondary, Special Schools, Pupil referral Units, the Pool of Additional Governors and nominations to non-Authority Academies be agreed as set out in the Appendix to these Minutes.
