NGN virtual meet – 29th July 7pm

We are looking for a small group of governors to join us next Wednesday, 29th July at 7pm on Zoom for an informal get together. If you are interested please in box the page and we will send details. We hope to hold more of these informal sessions over the coming months.

Your points of view. Have you got time to share a cuppa and an exchange of views in a short informal discussion with other governors. NGN are keen to hear your key take aways from governance through the lockdown. Discussions on how we worked well, ideas on how we could do better. Preparing the return to school in September to what could be a very challenging term while ensuring good governance remains at the forefront, using what we have learned looking back to move forward positively, delivering our core duties and supporting our schools/children.

Thank you to all those who attended and supported our spring Governor Briefings

We will add the information from these briefings when it becomes available.

We will not be running Governor Briefings in the Summer term but will review this as the situation with Covid-19 changes. We will update our Coronavirus Updates page with key information. Thank you to all those in Leadership at all levels for their work during this challenging time. Thanks also to all staff in schools.

Our spring briefings covered the following key topics for governors in Norfolk

The new Ofsted Framework 2019: what the key changes mean for governors.

Norfolk’s school landscape, school places and sufficiency strategy, and SEND area transformation update.

Schools Forum update.

We also had an update on EducateNorfolk the Headteacher’s representation organisation.
