Forum 2 – Wednesday 8 February 2023, 5.15 – 6.45pm
Penny Rabiger will lead a session on Governance by Enquiry via Zoom.
School governance is complex and ever-changing. Governors often find themselves struggling to understand how they can be strategic, have an impact on the school and steer clear of operational mission-creep. Here is a way to organise your governance that will maintain interest and impact, and will ensure that governance is dynamic during meetings and beyond. Attendees will learn about the concept of governance by enquiry, will consider the structures and routines of their own governing board, and will explore how they might initiate their board’s first governance enquiry.
Forum 1 – Wednesday 19 October 2022, 5.00 – 6.00 pm
Governors will be aware that the Government published a White Paper earlier this year entitled ‘Opportunity for All’, where they set out plans for the contribution that schools will make to their levelling-up agenda.
The paper covers training for teachers and leaders, tutoring, SEN provision, a ‘parent pledge’, changes to the length of the school week, behaviour, attendance and academisation.
Rosemary Kett and Nania Poulson will lead a session via Zoom which will outline key aspects of each of the following sections and what those changes might mean for your schools and governing bodies:
Part 1 – An excellent teacher for each child
Part 2 – Delivering high standards of curriculum, behaviour and attendance
Part 3 – Targeted Support for Children
Part 4 – A stronger and fairer school system
There will be opportunities to discuss your current actions with small groups and share your experience of what impact these changes might have.
Rosemary and Nania will not have all the answers! But they will be able to bring some clarity to what, as governing bodies, you need to know, and what you should be considering in your early meetings of the year.
