Governor Workshops, 15 November 2017

The next evening of workshops for Governors will take place on Wednesday 15 November 2017 in Camden.

The evening will start at 6.15pm with a light supper and an opportunity to meet other school governors. The formal part of the evening will begin at 7pm and finish by 9pm. Before the workshops, Rabbi Meyer will give an update on PaJeS work and introduce some of our new projects to you, including a mental health initiative for teacher training in schools and a leadership training programme for senior staff.

There will be a choice of workshops. As they all take place at the same time you can only choose one. You will need to indicate your choice when you book a place. 

The cost of the evening is £20 per person, with a capped fee of £80 for four or more people from one school. Payment is necessary before the event.

Workshop 1

Question, challenge and knowing when to have a courageous conversation
Clare Collins, National Governors’ Association


This will look at how your role on your governing board ensures effective accountability while maintaining good relationships. This session will include a focus on conflicts of interest such as those that may arise for parent and staff governors and trustees. 

Workshop 2

Meeting and surpassing DfE and Ofsted directives
Rabbi David Meyer, Executive Director of PaJeS


This session, chaired by Rabbi David Meyer, will look at how schools ensure they are compliant with current government and Ofsted directives. Topics to be covered may include promoting British values, teaching other religions, protected characteristics, LGBT, changes to free school admissions and segregation of sexes.  Schools who have developed good practice will be contributing to the presentation.

Workshop 3

Effective governance – how am I doing? Reviewing performance and planning for improvement
Janet Scott, SGOSS Governors for Schools


This is an opportunity to reflect and consider your contribution to help create a stronger and more motivated governing body.  Does your Board have the skills and expertise that enables it to support the head teacher and senior leadership team?
