Governor toolkit

The Ealing governor toolkit has been developed by the governance development team, other Ealing officers and governor associates, to provide support to Ealing school governing boards (GBs) and Ealing local authority (LA) officers/associates working with them.

As a council our vision for all schools is that they are well supported by good or outstanding GBs which, efficiently and effectively, carry out their three core functions as described in the Governance Handbook (January 2019) (GOV.UK).

The templates, information and guidance below have been designed to offer support and ideas which GBs can use and develop as appropriate to suit their own needs.

These documents should be adapted and used as appropriate as a result of gaining information, self-assessment, needs identification or to help with priorities.

Feedback on their content and use will be much appreciated. Other documents you think would provide additional support for GBs would be welcomed. Comments and documents can be sent to governors@ealing.gov.uk.
