East Sussex Children’s Service and the East Sussex Safeguarding Children Partnership (ESSCP) has set an expectation that the named safeguarding link governors attend, prior to or shortly after appointment, in-depth face to face training delivered by the East Sussex Governor and Clerking Services.
This session will provide new safeguarding link governors the knowledge to work effectively with the school’s designated safeguarding lead (DSL) and ensure the governing body's responsibilities are being met.
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.
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.
This is a briefing session for members of staff who are governors in their school. This session will help staff governors to effectively carry out their role. There will also be the chance for staff governors to network with other staff governors.Essential Information

The voluntary nature of governance makes it important that governing boards conduct their business efficiently to make the best use of
everyone's time. Professional clerking has a vital role to play in meeting the requirements of the governing board and a strong and effective working relationship between the clerk and the chair of governors is key to this.
This course aims to promote effective governance by bringing both parties together to explore:
As a new governor, you might be wondering how to start getting involved with the work of your governing board.
Induction is essential for all new governors to help understand their roles and responsibilities and effective boards should encourage everyone involved in governance, especially those new to the role, to make the most of the resources, guidance and training available to develop their knowledge and skills. Good induction can provide strategies and the basic knowledge to enable new governors to take an active role and make a
positive difference right from the start.
In a world where the education system and the expectation on governance is changing, existing governors wishing to update their governance may also find attendance beneficial.
