Latest News: Governor Network Meetings

As we continue to work together with you as governors, we are very aware of how helpful it is when governors from different schools are able to meet together to share how they are working on particular aspects of their role. This includes sharing some of the challenges that a board might be experiencing and hearing about how other governing bodies have managed similar challenges or situations. It is also a chance to share great practice and is often inspiring to listen to governors talking about how they work with school leaders and how this contributes to the experience of the children and young people in Suffolk schools.

If you receive an invitation to one of these meetings during the year, we would warmly encourage you to join us to support all governors with moving forward with their work.
