Governors can find themselves making critical decisions on staff members’ continued employment status. Governors could also be called upon to address appeals, reviewing the decisions made by previous Governor Panels or Senior Leaders. Whatever the reason, the governor’s role and purpose on the panel is vitally important and any governor involved should enter into the process fully equipped and prepared to address the requirements whilst understanding t ...

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.

EIF: Questions Demonstrating Effective Challenge (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 school’s 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 pup ...

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.”
