Summer Term Governor Briefings

Governors are invited to register for the Autumn term briefing sessions.  As greater expectations and responsibilities are placed on the roles of school governors it is important that governors keep themselves up to date with current practice.  These briefings provide bite size information to help you find out more about the issues affecting our schools.

Governor Induction Training

School governors play an important role in the running and management of schools providing strategic leadership, guidance and support.  Governors need to have a detailed understanding of how their school works and what is expected of them to help their school achieve success.  This knowledge is built up over time through attendance at meetings, visiting the school, discussions with the headteacher, staff and other governors and by attending training events and local authority briefings.
