Code: GOV959 Resolving Complaints - Governor Support and Micro Networking

This is an opportunity for governors and clerks to come together to look at practical ways that complaints can be resolved in schools. Governors, including headteachers, and clerks will be able to discuss different approaches and share best practice when resolving complaints. This session is open to any governor or clerk who finds themselves in need of some support or guidance around managing the complaints process. Headteachers may also find this session useful if they need support to manage a complaint at stage one to gain some support in resolving a complaint early so it does not escalate to the latter stages of the complaints process. Experienced members of the East Sussex Governors Forum and East Sussex Local Support Governors will be available to offer guidance and best practice.

Code: GOV957 Healthy Schools Governor Briefing

This briefing aims to inform governors about the Healthy Schools Programme.

Healthy Schools status: helping schools audit, evidence and gain certification for work around Mental Health, Physical Activity, Healthy Eating and RSHE.

Mental Health, Physical Activity, Healthy Eating and RSHE are four key topics for schools as all pupils return. We know that Schools across East Sussex have gone above and beyond in their support for pupils in these four areas over this period, and the Healthy Schools Award is a chance for schools to gain recognition for this work.

The Healthy Schools approach  is an approach used by schools across the UK (and in International schools across the world) to develop a whole school approach to 4 key areas : Mental Health, Physical Activity, Healthy Eating and RSHE.  The content is strongly aligned with the latest Ofsted descriptors and provides a clear framework and audit tool to help create a whole school approach for these 4 areas. Schools also gain nationally recognised certification once completed. For the next 3 years the School Health Service will be providing this for free to schools alongside providing support to help schools complete it. 

To support the Healthy Schools audit, the School Health Service is also offering free access to the My Health, My School survey. This time saving health and wellbeing survey is an online pupil perception survey that gathers children and young people’s views, behaviours and choices in relation to their health and wellbeing.  The survey is available for year groups 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 9, 11, 12 and 13, as well as provision for pupils with Special Educational Needs and Disabilities. This online, anonymous will analyse data responses immediately for you following completion of the survey to provide you with a full report on the data you need about your pupils.

Code: GOV882 Governor Training : Clerks Area Support and Network Meeting (EVENT FULL)

Professional clerking has a vital role to play in meeting the administrative and procedural requirements of boards and enabling efficient
and effective discussion and decision making.

The education sector can be a fast moving field, and you may find it tricky to stay on top of changes and statutory requirements. When considering the effectiveness of school governance, the role of the professional clerk cannot be underestimated and it is considered essential that clerks keep up to date with changes in the sector and identify good practice to make the most of the hours worked.

It is also recognised that the role can feel isolating when working independently of the school. The Area Network meetings give clerks the opportunity to network and share best practice with their colleagues.
