Effective schools need effective governing bodies. We are committed to providing support, training and resources to enable governing bodies, particularly with the specific task of leading a Church school.
The Diocesan Governance Consultants can help develop strong and effective governing bodies in a variety of ways suited to the needs and characteristics of each individual school.
General information and advice for governors to help them undertake their role effectively is available from a range of national organisations. Some of these organisations are listed below with links to their websites:
If it is felt that a conversation with our own Diocesan Team is appropriate, at least in the first instance, please contact us.
Your enquiry will be referred as soon as possible to our Governance Consultant. You will receive advice either by telephone or email within approx. 48 hours of your enquiry.
To support governors across the Diocese, we offer a range of opportunities for you to discuss any current issues or concerns, to support one another and share ideas.
