Specialist advice, support, information and training for governing bodies, governors and their clerks.

With over 28 years of serving governors, Lewisham Governors’ Services Team provides a comprehensive support service to school governing bodies in all types of educational settings.  We are able to support governing bodies, governors, associate members and clerks to fulfil their duties effectively by offering a professional clerking service, a comprehensive central governor training programme, a termly clerks’ briefing and training session, comprehensive information and guidance and bespoke support and development upon request.

All Lewisham Council-maintained schools benefit from:

  • On-line booking of Governor CPD courses at http://schoolsservices.lewisham.gov.uk/Training
  • Advice to queries by telephone or email
  • Nomination of local authority governors
  • Supporting schools in recruiting and appointing governors
  • Making of your Instrument of Government
  • Attendance for up to 2 members of the governing body to 3 termly briefing for chairs
  • Assistance for federations, collaborations and setting up temporary governing bodies
  • Assistance in developing a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU)
  • Assistance in setting up an Interim Executive Board (IEB)               

In addition to the above services, schools are able to purchase the following additional support:

  • Professional paperless clerking service
  • Central governor training programme for schools with Lewisham Clerks
  • Support and training service for schools with independent clerks
  • Modern governor e-learning discounted subscription

Governors can thus become more confident in carrying out their roles and responsibilities effectively and are equipped to raise achievement and progress through monitoring, challenging and evaluating the performance of the school.
