- strategic planning for the school – provides an opportunity to discuss and consider specific issues;
- co-ordinating agenda setting, for Full Governing Body and committees and also overseeing annual cycle of works;
- information sharing and promoting good communication – between the school/ SLT and governors; and
- dealing with issues that may arise between governing body meetings – the group does not have delegated authority but decisions can be taken by the Chair or referred to relevant meetings.
The Strategic Group meets at least six times a year.
