Hi Folks I was the finance committee link governor for my local secondary school during the last academic year. Although I used to attend the meetings on a regular basis and have a look at the school accounts (handouts were given out during meetings), I was never given an indepth explanation of what the figures meant and whether or not they were 'reasonable'. However, I did make repeated requests for an indepth knowledge from the chair of the governors, but she never got round to sitting with me to do this! I therefore never did any link governor work with any of the other members of school staff (i.e. talking to members of staff about what their requirements may be) because I didn't have the background knowledge. And so, never produced any reports - and nobody on the committee asked me to produce a report! Now it seems that the finance committee of the school governing body are expecting to receive a link governor report for finance for the last academic year from myself, which of course I did not do ! Do you think I have been very silly in not producing a report and because of that, would I be thrown out of the committee? Thanks in advance for your response.
