Newsletter and governor development opportunities 2020-21

Governor development opportunities

In order to support governors through this academic year, and in response to the challenges we face as we recover from the COVID-19 pandemic, we have revised the governor development opportunities available from September 2020 with sessions that are current and up-to-date to ensure that governors feel confident and well equipped to be able to provide the support and necessary challenge to the Headteacher of the school where they are a governor.

All the sessions will be delivered virtually using Microsoft Teams, until we are in a position to be able to deliver the sessions face to face once more. 

The new opportunities available include:

  • Staff and pupil wellbeing
  • Narrowing the gap in achievement
  • Restoring the Curriculum post Covid-19
  • Getting to know your school

You can take a look at the development sessions for 2021.
