Governor Support updates

Governance has never been more critical, and governors and trustees continue to provide support and strategic challenge within their schools and trusts.

In recognition of frequent changes, the Local Authority (LA) circulates communications directly to schools, governors and includes lots of useful information on the Cumbria County Council (CCC) website: 

  • Two New Councils for Cumbria, CCC have launched a Local Government Reorganisation (LGR) website which provides a wealth of information, such as information on the background to LGR and developing two new councils for Cumbria.
    There is also a timeline of events, a glossary to help residents, businesses and partners understand the process as well as some of the terminology.  Take a look at the new LGR website
  • All Covid-19 Schools updates can be viewed on the CCC website. 
  • The government has provided guidance on how educational and childcare settings should plan for and deal with emergencies, including significant public health incidents and severe weather.  In addition, you may find the governments guidance, Covid-19 Response: Living with Covid-19 helpful.

We hope the information and links above will provide support, however, If you have further queries please contact: gst@cumbria.gov.uk.

The Governor Support Team newsletter aims to provide information, as well as offer tips and advice to support governing boards to deliver their statutory responsibilities in relation to governance.
