Governors’ conference season 2020: Session 1 Opening of schools

Home > Governors’ conference season 2020: Session 1 Opening of schools

For this term we have spread out a range of sessions which would normally have been part of the annual conference. The training will be accessible to all and may necessitate access to a computer or at least some online facility. Training will be no more than 60 minutes duration and held on Zoom for this term. All governors registering will be sent a link to join the Zoom session. There will be opportunities to discuss and ask questions.


Opening of schools - what have we learned so far and how will this impact on our actions as governors?


This session led by Chair of Governors and Headteacher, Richard Hunter, and input from secondary governor, David Botterill, will provide a timely opportunity to discuss the current progress and issues in the opening of schools. It will cover wide ranging topics about how pupils, staff and parents are responding to the new ways of working. The session will focus on measures taken by schools to ensure pupils and staff remain in safe environments. It will also include discussions about the curriculum, with the challenges for SEND pupils and those in the exam years.
