Getting Governance to the Minimum Standard

Focus: Leadership and Management
For: Governors


Effective Governance: a session for governors about being as effective as possible within the time constraints of volunteering.

  • What are the key documents I need to know about?
  • Meeting preparation to make sure I can contribute effectively.
  • Link Governance – getting under the skin of an issue.
  • Traditional methods that work- book trawls, learning walks & visits, reports from middle leaders.
  • Asking effective questions.

Director’s Note:

A must for both established and new governors.  Roland is a fantastically knowledgeable provider on the subject of governance.  (I attend his monthly briefings and forward the key information on to Catholic Primary Partnership schools).
