About governor support
Governor Support team
The Governor Support Team is part of the Quality, Standards and Performance Team within the Learning and Inclusion Department of CYP. Jayne Hadfield is the Governor Support Manager. We work closely with all the Senior School Improvement Officers as it is important that Governor Support is seen to be hand in hand with School Improvement and is not an extra requirement.
For all schools, regardless of whether you have bought a package from us, we will:
- check draft Instruments of Government when governing bodies wish to reconstitute/change their membership and arrange the legal sealing thereafter
- appoint LA governors - this includes taking into account the criteria specified by those governing bodies who have reconstituted under the 2012 regulations
- offer training that can be accessed on a Pay As You Go basis
- arrange bespoke school or cluster based training.
Training is available to all governors and clerks. Please see the Annual Training Programme 2021-22 for details. Here is the Quality, Standards and Performance, School Improvement, Governor Services and NQTs Charging and Cancellation Policy March 2017.
A Training Feedback Form is available to complete following any attendance on courses. This should be given to your Training Link Governor and fed back to the Governing Body at the next meeting under the training item on the agenda.
If you wish to discuss your training requirements or Sold Service subscription at any time contact Jayne on 640364 or Jayne.firstname.lastname@example.org.
Succession planning in a governing body is important, as in any organisation, for the stability and progress of the enterprise. This revised and updated edition of the National Coordinators of Governor Services (NCOGS) document Succession Breeds Success is aimed at assisting governors in managing the process in a positive and constructive way so that governance and the leadership of the governing body are strong and effective in holding the school to account.
