We regularly hear from officers from the Local Authority, fellow Governors and national speakers on topical issues and matters that Governors themselves have expressed an interest in. Meetings also provide an opportunity for Governors to meet and talk and share good practice or to voice their opinions and concerns over current issues.
The Forum has representatives on committees such as Schools Forum, Overview and Scrutiny Committee and Governor Support and Development Working Group. This gives Governors a direct voice and vote on educational issues and decisions.
Schools that subscribe to the Forum, for a nominal £20 per year, can name the members of the Governing Body that would like to receive the notice of any meetings. This can be one or all members of your Governing Body. Any member of the Governing Body is welcome to attend meetings at any time.
We also have an Executive Panel that meet regularly to plan and discuss the future development of the Forum.
