The next governor workshop evening will be held on Wednesday 7 March 2018 at Bet Meir, LSJS campus, 44a Albert Road, Hendon NW4 2SG.

The evening will start at 6.45pm with a light supper and an opportunity to meet other school governors.  The formal part of the evening will begin at 7.30 pm and finish by 9.30pm.

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.

Workshop 1
General Data Protection Regulation
Mark Harvey, Charles Russell Speechlys LLP

GDPR will apply from 25 May 2018 and will replace the current Data Protection Act. Governors should be aware of the changes that are coming and how to ensure that their school is compliant.  They will need to look at reviewing the school's policies and procedures, increasing staff awareness of the changes, appointing a Data Protection Officer, and consider an information audit.  The session will cover the practical implications of the new regulations and give governors an opportunity to ask questions.

Workshop 2
Safeguarding
Clare Collins, National Governors’ Association

This session will cover what safeguarding is and make governors aware of the statutory guidance they need to follow. It will include an understanding of how schools keep children safe and explain the role of governors.

Workshop 3
School Visits
Richard Tyndall, National Governors’ Association 

The purpose of this session is to develop governors’ understanding of why they should visit their school, identifying the purpose for their visits, and the framework that needs to be established to enable effective visiting to take place. It will include looking at developing knowledge of the school through visits, the policy and protocol around a visit and reflecting on making an impact.
