Redbridge Governance Advisory & Support ServicePicture of booklet for governors

The Governors Support Service is dedicated to providing information, advice, training and support to our 1400 school governors. We offer advice to Governing Bodies on issues raised and support when recruiting a head teacher.

The team supports the termly meeting with the Cabinet Member and Director of Children's Services.

The support will include:

  • a central training programme of courses covering relevant issues for schools
  • regular briefing notes on topical issues
  • nominating local people as LA governor on the governing bodies of maintained schools.

The team also provides training courses for governors aimed at updating and equipping governors to carry out their many functions and responsibilities to the benefit of the school and community. The essential overarching document for good governance is the Governors' Handbook.

In this section you will find the following pages provide supporting information and links to school governance:
