Full Governing Board (FGB) meetings

The full governing board meets five times a year. At these meetings, it carries out its three core functions, as identified by the Department for Education in the Governors' 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.

Helen Johnson is the Chair of Governors: helenjohnson@brunswick.brighton-hove.sch.uk

Vice Chair is Nigel Lecky.

The minutes of FGB meetings are published below once they have been agreed by the governing board. 

Some functions are delegated to committees. Brunswick Primary School has two committees:

 

Resources Committee (Chair: Daniel Holmes)

Shaun Collins                                   
Diane Gare
