The platform used by Ealing Council for governing board membership data / information is GovernorHub. GovernorHub is a secure password protected web-based platform, where clerks can amend their board membership directly in one place and which Ealing Governor Services can also view. For full details of the data we hold, why and how we use, please see our School Governor Services privacy notice on EGfL.
Are all boards required to use this platform to record membership details?
All Ealing school governing boards are required to use GovernorHub. Governors hold an important public office and as part of the local authority's legal school governance statutory and public task obligations, maintained schools are required to provide governor membership information. This is in addition to submitting governor information on GIAS and the school’s own website.
Academies will also be required to use GovernorHub. Whilst not a statutory obligation for academies to provide all trustee / governor personal details, we do require key contact information in the event of any safeguarding or Schools Causing Concern duties. It also enables Ealing governor services to keep boards up to date with any key national/local governance matters and training.
Update your governing board membership
Once clerks have registered on GovernorHub, they will be able to see governance information for each school they clerk for on their profile ‘washing line’. They can then set up other members of their board with viewing / editing rights and make changes to the governance membership of a board.
If you have forgotten your password sign into GovernorHub to request password reminder.
