Integra Schools, Governor Services provide a comprehensive professional service to all education settings, allowing them to benefit from effective and efficient governing boards who work strategically and positively contribute to the effectiveness of leadership.
There are two sections to the website, the first tab is publically available. The public part of the website contains information and guidance that the Local Authority is required to provide in order to meet its statutory responsibilities.
The remaining tabs: 'Core Governance'; 'Knowing Your School' and 'Policies, Guidance and Legislation' are available to those governing boards who subscribe to Integra Schools, Governor Services.
The menu on the left provides information about our services and how you can access our support.
We have updated our website checker to include recommended best practice information.
We strongly recommend that all schools take the time to check their school's website against the website checker, a recent (October 2016) Ofsted report stated that:
"Governors have not ensured that the school website is up to date and compliant with statutory requirements. Parents and members of the public have nothing more than the names of governors and many of these are out of date as some of the governors, including the chair, have left."
You can find the checklist within the 'Guidance' section of the website.
This new briefing note looks at how governors can effectively challenge and how the outcomes can be evidenced.
You can find this guidance within the 'Core Governance' - 'Work of the Governing Body' tab.
