Getting to Grips with Governance - Intensive (Governors)

The Department for Education and Ofsted have high expectations of boards of governors/trustees. They are the strategic leaders of our schools/academies and have a vital role to play in making sure every child gets the best possible education. In all school settings, boards should have a strong focus on the three core functions:
• Ensuring clarity of vision, ethos and strategic direction;
• Holding the head-teacher to account for the educational performance of the school and its pupils, and the performance management of staff; and
• Overseeing the financial performance of the scho ...

Education Welfare - Linking Attendance to Attainment (Governors)

DfE guidance clearly states that central to raising standards in education and ensuring all pupils can fulfil their potential is an assumption so widely understood that it is insufficiently stated – pupils need to attend school regularly to benefit from their education. Missing out on lessons leaves children vulnerable to falling behind. Children with poor attendance tend to achieve less in both primary and secondary school.

All Boards must reassure themselves that the school keeps admission and attendance registers in accordance with The Education (Pupil Registration)(England) Regulation ...

Getting it Right as a Parent Governor (Governors)

Currently, school governing boards are required to have elected parent governors. Effective governing boards have a significant impact on school improvement and all board members, including parent governors, need a sound understanding of their role and responsibilities. Parent governors are elected by other parents at the school. Any parent, or carer, of a registered pupil at the school at the time of election, is eligible to stand for election as a parent governor. Parent governors may continue to hold office until the end of their term of office even if their child leaves the school.

The Role of the Staff Governor (Governors)

Board members, including Staff Governors, therefore require a sound understanding of their role and responsibilities. Staff Governors are elected by the school staff and they cease to hold office when they cease to work at the school.

Teaching and support staff who, at the time of election, are employed by either the governing board or the local authority to work at the school under a contract of employment, are eligible to be a Staff Governor.

Asking challenging and constructive questions based on the key Ofsted judgements (Governors) (EVENT FULL)

The role of the school governor has changed, and continues to change. Aside from juggling work and family commitments, governors must know their schools well and meet the expectations set by the Department for Education and Ofsted.
Knowing your school well and asking challenging questions are two of the eight elements of effective governance.

The role of the school’s Governing Board is to challenge the status quo and to ask, “so what is the impact of that?” With education changing apace, it is vital that “impact?” becomes the mantra adopted by all governors to ensure the progress of pupil ...
