School Financial Management - Part 1 (Governors) (Cancelled)

“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.”

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.
