Governors' meetings held virtually via Zoom, Teams, Skype for Business, etc., have actually been very successful overall. Some governors have expressed the view that these meetings have been better organised than face-to-face meetings on the school premises. Although pupils and staff will return in September, I shall advise the governors at the four schools for which I clerk to hold off on meeting at school for at least six months and continue with virtual meetings for now. A good number of the governors are past retirement and so are age-vulnerable (as am I). I should be interested to know what plans other boards (or their clerks) may have for the future.
