Governor Briefings

Governor Briefings

Each term we provide an opportunity for governors to hear about the latest educational developments both within our own diocese and, where appropriate, nationally.  Common updates include admissions, recruitment and Ofsted.  These briefings are held in venues across the diocese to facilitate as many as governors as possible being able to attend.

On this page you will find the presentations from the most recent briefings together with any additional documents that were shared.

All those promised in the academic year 2018/19 briefings have now been completed.  Check back on this page in September to see the proposed dates and venues for the 2019/20 briefings.

To book a place on any training or briefings linked to governors please visit the TRAINING AND BRIEFINGS page.

GOVERNOR BRIEFING – SPRING 19

There will be a slight change to this term’s briefing for governors.  The briefings will focus on one topic but will also be open to any interested teachers, parents or clergy.  The sessions will be led by Edmund Adamus.  The dates and venues are listed in the dates section of this newsletter.   

The Government expects all primary schools in England to be ready to implement “Relationships Education” and secondary schools to deliver Relationships & Sex Education from September 2020. The DfE has now concluded its consultations on the aims and objectives of these subjects and the final version of Statutory Guidance is expected to be published in the Spring this year. 

The briefings [which are open to teachers, parents and clergy also] will explore  sources of inspiration as well as practical resources/programmes/initiatives which  our Catholic schools can draw upon.
