There is too much involved in governance for one person to do it all on their own so this session looks at what needs to be done and how we can use the skills and abilities on the governing board to best effect. The session explores how to use a self-review of governance, roles and responsibilities of governors and how to conduct and report effective school visits. Governing bodies are recognised by the DfE and Ofsted as equal partners in leadership with the headteacher and senior management team so it’s essential to have everyone in the team fully engaged..

  • Identifying Training needs from a governance self-review process
