Governor KTSA Conference 4 May 2018

1st May 2018

On Friday 4 May 2018 Kernow Teaching School Alliance (KTSA) hosted another governance conference to its partner schools as part of the KTSA School Improvement programme. The governors from the Atlantic Centre of Excellence (ACE), Newquay Education Trust (NET), The Learning Academy Trust (TLAT) and Acorn Academy Cornwall enjoyed an informative morning of workshops: The Governors role in Ofsted; Governor's responsibilities for Safeguarding; An approach to Governor monitoring; improving attendance and Pupil premium. For the afternoon session there were three workshops to choose from catering to the governors’ individual needs. New governors attended an induction session to get to grips with their role while others could choose from an introduction to, or a refresher for coaching skills, finding out the opportunities for training through the NGA and KTSA or finding out more information about strategic planning for Mentally Healthy schools.

Governors are a vital part of each organisation and the work that they do in supporting our schools is valued. The Governors very much enjoyed the time to chat to governor colleagues from across the schools that belong to the alliance and sharing good practice across the partnership.
