Keeping you updated

We produce an on-line magazine, 'Hampshire Governor', twice a year which has a variety of articles of interest to governors.

We also produce an on-line newsletter every term which highlights changes in good practice, legislation and guidance. It also includes a link to a list of recommended agenda items for each term.

We also release by email to governors, a fortnightly support and advice update, and a fortnightly training update.

Password protected website

Our website offers a one stop shop information and advice service which is available to our subscribers 24/7. It holds a comprehensive databank of policies, documents and guidance linked to national regulations.

There is a ‘what’s new?’ area and a specialist area for clerks and Development and Training Governors.

There are a growing number of e-learning programmes available to our subscribers at no additional cost. These allow governors to access training at a time and location of their choosing, and can help governors to handle crisis situations effectively. Some examples:

  • understanding teachers pay
  • reconstitution guidance
  • dealing with pay appeals
  • dealing with child protection matters
  • complaints handling
  • governors' disciplinary committee
  • governor hearings on staffing matters
  • parents as governors: getting it right
  • staff as governors: getting it right
