Good governance is key to an effective and successful independent school, academy or college.
In educational establishments the role of the governing body has become increasingly strategic. Each individual governor has a duty to apply their own experience in guiding and supporting the organisation’s development and challenging improvement.
Latest Department of Education evidence suggests there is a relationship between good governance and pupils’ achievements, the quality of teaching, and the quality of leadership and management.
We work with your management team, clerk, senior managers and governors to:
- effectively manage the organisation’s resources and assets
- employ senior post-holders, including their appointment and termination
- review the benefits and risks of potential conversions, mergers and collaborations
Regular training and provision of information will assist your governors in their essential roles.
