On the 9th December, the Schools’ Forum had agreed that the Term of Office for Schools’ Forum members be extended from three to four years. Jessica Bailiss reported that the Schools’ Forum’s constitution had been updated accordingly and any new members joining the Forum from the 9th December 2019 would have a Term of Office of four years. Those who were members prior to this date would continue on their three year term.
