Covid-19 Guidance for Governors 26th March 2020

Covid-19 Updated guidance for Governors 26th March 2020

 COVID-19 Guidance on Governance

The DfE has now published Covid-19 Governance Update which provides the latest departmental and government advice on the spread of the CODID-19 virus and how this relates to the role of those on governing bodies, boards of academy companies and clerks and governance professionals. The advice note can be found here: https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/school-governance-update/school-governance-update-march-2020?utm_source=GT&utm_medium=SH&utm_campaign=Mar


The legal team has been fielding questions about how those conducting schools might continue to do so at this time. Hopefully the advice from the DfE will assist. In addition, the NGA has issued guidance which you may well find useful and can be accessed here: https://www.nga.org.uk/Knowledge-Centre/Executive-leaders-and-the-governing-boards/The-Coronavirus-Information-for-governing-boards-M.aspx


Please ensure you are also liaising closely with local authorities in doing so. There is concern that local authorities may be struggling to cope with the administration of setting up hubs and it would be helpful if schools would work together to present proposals to them.

Thank you for all that you are doing together to support one another.
