Dates of meetings for the School Year, 2021/2022

It is suggested that meetings be held as follows:-


Ø  (Tuesday 21st September 2021 at 2.00 p.m. – already confirmed)

Ø  Tuesday 7th December 2021 at 4.00 p.m.

Ø  Monday 14th February 2022 at 2.00 p.m.

In terms of venue, depending on the situation with Covid-19, it is intended that meetings will generally revert to being “attended” meetings –usually in Northallerton – and with one meeting to be held at a School. However, a blend of attended and remote meetings is a possibility.
