Fortnightly Friday Update for School Governors (12 July 2019)

With just a week to go before the end of term, it’s a very appropriate time to start this final Friday Update of the year by thanking all our volunteer school governors for everything you do to ensure Birmingham’s schools do the best they can, ensuring every child receives the best possible education. It isn’t an easy task and we know many of you have been tackling some very difficult issues particularly around school budgets, although, I hope we all get a sense that at long last the Department for Education (DfE) is listening to your concerns. The final run up to the end of term is an ideal time for Chairs, Headteachers and Clerks to meet, have a discussion to agree the business to be covered for each of your governing board (GB) and committee meetings for the 2019/20 academic year.  

 

Can we also remind you that the Learning to Shape Birmingham 2019 conference will provide an opportunity to complement our ‘Year of the Governor’ with a shared breakfast on day two, see details under ITEMS FOR ACTION.
