Better governors, better governance

Friday 02 March 2018

Would you like your independent school governors to be better informed? More than 1,600 independent school governors receive and enjoy copies of Governance Insight, the only scenario-based publication that is designed to help them think and act like governors by guiding them through options in potential scenarios, including those for safeguarding, inspections and social media threats.

Do your governors lie awake at night, fearful of their responsibilities to your school? Or, worse, do they sleep peacefully, unaware of just how serious the role is? And how can they learn constructively and effectively in a clear and rewarding way?

Governance Insight is a termly, scenario-based magazine that leads to best practice in independent school governance. This subscription-only publication helps to ensure that your governors can make your school the best it can be.

The latest edition tackles corporate manslaughter and cutting costs, while the issue next month will assess school expansion and managing historic sexual abuse in a scenario format.

Recent comments on the magazine from independent schools:

"Since first being published, our governors have found Governance Insight magazine to be a useful and informative addition to their termly meetings and discussions."
John Champion, bursar and secretary to the Council, Cheltenham College

“My governors like the scenarios you put to them and from which they have to choose options, such as defence against grooming or inappropriate behaviour (but) not always answering correctly, they tell me. This is a very fine tool.”
Dr Bill Kerr, bursar, The Glasgow Academy
