Regular and consistent attendance by members at Governing Body meetings and Committees ensures that all meetings are quorate and therefore are able to make decisions. Also a variety of views can be expressed which in turn facilitates informed and effective decision – making and spreads the workload fairly amongst the Governors.
There may be times where prior arrangements, unexpected situations or ill health mean that a member cannot attend a meeting. In such cases the member must send apologies for the full Governing Body, to the Chair of Governors or Clerk, or for Committees to the Chair of the Committee prior to the meeting. A Committee Chair must apologise for absence to the Chair of Governors.
If no apology is received before the meeting then the Governors’ consent at a Full Governing Body meeting will not be given.
When a member has been absent for two consecutive meetings, the Chair or Vice-Chair of Governors / Committee will be responsible for contacting the member to find out whether the member’s absence is likely to continue and / or whether the member wishes to continue in office.
For further information on the attendance of governors please contact the Chair on Governors.
