Motion #24

THAT Conference notes the publication of the latest Governance Handbook and the Competency Framework for Governance, both of which seek to drive more effective governance in schools in England, and values the contribution made by many governors who have growing demands made upon them, despite these being voluntary roles.

Conference therefore asks the Executive Committee to work with the National Governors Association and others to lobby for more governor training and advice and more effective avenues for remedial action should standards falter.
