School Governance Services
We believe that all children and young people thrive in schools that are “good” or “outstanding” and in order to achieve this they need effective governance.
School Governance Services strive to build skills and confidence of motivated volunteers to effectively support and appropriately challenge school leaders and to oversee the long-term development of their school, maintaining a focus on the achievement of all children at the heart of all they do. Our support is tailored to the needs of the school and Governing Board and we will also challenge if it is in the best interests of the school and its community. Through hands-on support, high quality resources, expert guidance, partnerships and sharing best and emerging practice of others, we support Governing Boards to respond to the changing educational landscape quickly and effectively. We do this through the provision of three broad, inter-related services – school improvement, governor training and clerking.

Our services are available to maintained schools, academies, free schools, multi-academy trusts and independent schools.
