What Partnerships must do to comply with the Partnership Agreement; three actions:

1. Hold a meeting each term led by the Chair to which all local secondary Heads of School have been invited.

2. In the meeting cover all the items included in the document "Model Agenda for Local Governance Boards".  

3. Submit three documents to the Local Authority ready for the County Governance Board Meetings.  These are:

a. Minutes of the Local Board Meeting

b. The latest Financial Report that has been received by your Local Board
