On the naming of Governors
Today, the BBC reported that there are more changes afoot for schools in terms of reporting details about their Governors. Quoting the BBC website:
But in the government's response to the Trojan Horse report, which argued that MPs had downplayed the seriousness of the problems in Birmingham, there are now plans to gather information about governors.
"We will create a national database of school governors by toughening up requirements on schools to publish the identities of their governors," says the education department.
The details of governors published by schools should also include "details of where they serve on governing bodies of schools elsewhere".
We thought, as we have had many discussions over the past few weeks with schools about the Governors pages of their websites, it would be prudent to advise that you should think about including this in the increasing amount of 'technical' information that your school will need to plan for over the coming weeks.
Forewarned is forearmed.
