Our last Update, “Governing Schools through the Pandemic and Beyond” (May 2021), focussed on matters such as setting fee levels and anti-competition law, parent contracts, furloughing staff, remote learning, public exams and wellbeing.

This Update encourages Governors to reflect adequately on the changes that have occurred, the impact those changes have had and how best to move on by listening to stakeholders.

We unpick beginning-of-term issues such as staff inductions, curriculum and safeguarding, and we conclude with thoughts on some longer-term strategic matters.

The Update includes useful links to resources and reports to support Governors in their roles.

Colleagues at RSAcademics are available to assist with many of the issues raised, and we look forward to hearing from you should you wish to discuss anything.
