Walsall Governor Support Services 2017/18 – Services we offer

Providing quality services to schools and academies to develop and maintain effective governance.

We provide a wide range of quality assured and competitive services that help develop and maintain effective governance in schools and academies across Birmingham and the Black Country. We provide direct and tailored support to governors, school leaders and clerks in their governance roles. With a breadth of professional governance experience and expertise the team is confident it can meet the specific governance needs of your school.

The Department for Education’s Governance Handbook and Competency Framework sets out clear expectations for governing bodies as strategic leaders and stresses the role they play in supporting children and young people to achieve the very best outcomes through school. There is increasing expectations in terms of evidencing self-reflection and ongoing training and development as a governing board.

Walsall Governor Support and Development Team work closely with a range of partners to help schools and academies navigate and keep abreast of the changing regulatory and inspection framework for governance. We work closely with a range of partners including Walsall School Improvement Partners (SIPs), National Governors Association (NGA), Walsall Governors Association (WGA), and have an extensive network of experienced governors and professionals including National Leaders of Governance (NLGs) to provide high quality support to governing bodies.

Over the coming year we look forward to working closely with you and doing all we can to meet your expectations.
