Event Summary This conference will enable delegates to reflect and consider the effectiveness of school governance and its pivotal role in school improvement.
Event description
The focus of our annual governor conference for 2018/19 is the role of governance in school improvement. The conference will provide delegates with a range of key note speakers who will give a perspective on governance from 'the big picture' to a local view.
We have secured, Sir David Carter, National Schools' Commissioner until August 2018, to deliver our key note presentation; and aim to have sessions from Ofsted and a local National Leader of Governance.
Our final presenters will share an innovative evaluation tool which supports school leaders and governors to use school data to analyse curriculum provision and then model financially viable scenarios to meet the school's educational aims.
Additional information Key note speaker: Sir David Carter
Director of System Leadership


Until September 2018, Sir David Carter was the National Schools Commissioner. Before this appointment he was the first Regional Schools Commissioner for the South West. David was one of the first national leaders of education and has held previous posts including Principal of John Cabot City Technology College in Bristol and CEO of the Cabot Learning Federation. 
Learning outcomes The conference is held in recognition of the important voluntary work undertaken by school governors and to facilitate communication between governors and the Local Authority.

To support this we are offering governors and clerks the opportunity to network with other governors and the chance to visit a variety of lunchtime 'marketplace' stands covering a range of services of interest to governors. In addition there is the opportunity to share information and experiences and explore common issues.
