“Governors are part of the largest volunteer workforce in the country. The Governing Body is ultimately responsible for the school’s ability to deliver the best quality of education to its students and to ensure value for the significant sum of public money that is necessary to run the school”
Every school has a Board of Governors which often includes parents of children at the school, members co-opted from the community and school staff, including the Headteacher. Together, they are jointly responsible for providing strategic leadership and ensuring accountability.
Dedicated to school development & improvement, they work in partnership with the school management team and make important decisions with regard to the running of the school. This is in relation to curriculum provision, pupil targets, school development plans, budget management, staffing, health and safety and management of premises.
Questions about Governance or Correspondence for the Board of Governors should be directed to Deborah Moss, Senior Clerk to Lydiate Learning Trust on 07853140551 or at email@example.com
Message to our Governors
The extensive work that you do to support education is invaluable.
With that in mind the NGA is asking you to join them in championing your contribution to the education system and shining a light on the difference that good governance makes to your school/trust?
In early 2020, NGA launched the Visible Governance in Schools campaign to celebrate, champion and raise the profile of the impact of good governance on schools. After a pause to the campaign due to COVID-19, it will relaunch in January 2021.
The NGA are encouraging members to be bold about sharing what you do and why, providing resources and ideas to be visible in your school/ trust and sharing examples of visibility and the impact of good governance.
As part of the campaign, NGA’s Outstanding Governance Awards 2021 will open for nominations on Monday 11 January 2021.
There will be an update you on the plans in January, but it is not too early to get involved.
You can download the logo and other material on our resources page and we encourage you and your Trust/Academies to use the Visible Governance branding wherever you like to promote your participation in the campaign.
Please take a look and consider where you could promote your involvement and the difference it makes..
Thank you for your continuing support
