Governors have a responsibility to ensure that their school is mentally healthy. Schools should have a named MHEW lead in each school/college, and also a named MHEW lead governor. Governors play a key role in supporting SLT in embedding a culture and good practice to support positive
practice around staff and students' MHEW in schools. This course will allow governors to familiarise themselves with their responsibilities and understand the role of the governor in mental health provision.
One of the key responsibilities for governing boards is "Holding executive leaders to account for the educational performance of
the organisation and its pupils." The course aims to provide governors with a clear understanding of why governing boards should have a school visit schedule linked to the school’s Improvement Plan and how to be effective during the visit and in reporting the outcomes.
