School Financial Management (Governors) (EVENT FULL)

“The board’s third core function is to oversee financial performance and make sure public money is well spent. It should do this by ensuring it has at least one individual with specific, relevant skills and experience of financial matters. This individual should also build a relationship with the school business professional acting as the link between the SBP and the governing board. However, everyone on the board should have a basic understanding of the financial cycle and the legal requirements of the school on accountability and spend.”
(Governance Handbook, March 2019, DfE)

Equality Matters. Are we compliant? (Governors) (EVENT FULL)

• Spiritual, moral, social and cultural development;
• Fundamental British values;
• Citizenship;
• Equality and diversity

The session is targeted at governors from all school setti ...

Focused Governor Visits (Governors) (EVENT FULL)

The Governance Handbook states that Governors need to know their school, if accountability is going to be robust and their vision for the school is to be achieved (March 2019).

Through pre-arranged visits with a clear focus, the board can see for themselves how policies and improvement plans are working in practice. Visits also provide an opportunity to talk with pupils, staff and parents, to build relationships and to demonstrate commitment. Visiting and taking part in learning walks within a school is a great opportunity for governors to really engage and experience life in school. Whils ...

Unconscious Bias and Its Potential Impact in Schools (Governors)

The course will identify strategies that school governors can adopt to ensure that will minimise the potential impact within their own settings.

Please note: This course is funded for any schools that ...

The Role of Governors in the Exclusion Process (Governor)

Good discipline in schools is essential to ensure that all pupils can benefit from the opportunities provided by education. The Government supports headteachers in using exclusion as a sanction where it is warranted. However, permanent exclusion should only be used as a last resort, in response to a serious breach or persistent breaches, of the school's behaviour policy; and where allowing the pupil to remain in school would seriously harm the education or welfare of the pupil or others in the school.

Governors have a statutory duty to review certain pupil exclusions and consider parents' ...

Monitoring Wellbeing as part of Relationship, Sex and Health Education (Governors)

The new Relationship, Sex and Health Education (RHSE) statutory regulations (DfE, June 2019), compulsory from September 2020, is an integral element of provision within the curriculum, and involves the teaching of mental as well as physical health to pupils at all phases of education.

Pupil mental health and wellbeing has never been so important for schools and those in governance should be seeking assurance that schools are responding to policy, guidance, and expectation.

New Governors - Understanding Your Role (Governors) (EVENT FULL)

The Department for Education has high expectations of governing bodies. They are the strategic leaders of our schools and have a vital role to play in making sure every child gets the best possible education. For maintained schools this is reflected in the law, which states that the purpose of maintained school governing bodies is to "conduct the school with a view to promoting high standards of educational achievement at the school". In all school settings, governing bodies should have a strong focus on three core strategic functions.

The content of this course is structured around these ...
