Regional Governance Conference

30 March 2017, Durham County Cricket Club, Emirates Riverside




Governing boards are key to the effectiveness of schools and of fundamental importance in helping to drive up standards. With the considerable transformation of the education landscape and the changes to school structures, assessment, curriculum and statutory testing, it is now more important than ever for governors to be up to date on the latest policies and procedures.

Join us, and over 250 colleagues from across the region, for SCHOOLS NorthEast’s inaugural Regional Governance Conference. This conference will support those in school governance roles and will also provide advice to school leaders.


Topics on the day will include:

  • Ofsted and compliance
  • Selection and recruitment of governors
  • Self-review of governing bodies
  • Effective clerking and its impact on school governance
  • The changing education landscape
  • Finance for governors


Confirmed speakers include Belita Scott HMI, Ofsted's National Lead for Governance, who will explain what is expected of governing boards and how to make sure you are inspection ready.


This conference will support those in school governance roles – state-maintained and academy – in carrying out their duties confidently and effectively.This event is also aimed at senior leaders who want to make sure they have a high performing governing board and those looking to recruit new governors.


There will be plenty of time to meet new colleagues and expand your personal network, along with engaging with a range of specially selected provider organisations.
