Future Update:

All maintained school Governors in Surrey are currently covered as members with a block subscription which give them free access to the annual conference of SGA and to other SGA events.

Items of interest are emailed to Governors usually through their schools, Clerk to the Governors or Headteacher, sometimes even to info @. This can cause delay to Governors and Trustees being informed of issues of importance. To ensure you are kept fully up to date, simply send your name, your preferred email address and the name of your schooladmin@surreygovernors.org.uk

Make sure you are kept up to date on Governance

As an independent association we are publishing the current information from Surrey CC and their agents as well as the DfE and the Ofsted weekly updates. We also publish all training suppliers information for those who submit their programmes relevant to Surrey Governance, likewise we are publishing the latest news and information including links to Ofsted and to NGA for Governors and Trustees to access from the pages of this website. Making it a one stop point for keeping up to date, we also run meetings for Governors and Trustees in Surrey and produce a termly Bulletin which is emailed out to you. Make sure you are kept informed by sending your details to admin@surreygovernors.org.uk send your name, the name of the school at which you are a Governor or Trustee and preferred email address.

Calling our support governors ASGs or those governors with a little time to offer.

Most surrey governors will be aware of the support given to many governing boards from tribunals to relief in times of need or to assist with appointments of headteachers and the leadership team; they are also available to help recover from a down grading by Ofsted. These more seasoned and experienced governors who volunteer even more of their time are in Surrey known as ASG’s advanced skills governors. They have recently for several reasons suffered a reduction to their numbers and as we are now in the beginning of building a Schools-Led System it is felt opportune to recruit some additional numbers to their ranks. We are also going to rename all the support team so rather than ASG’s they will become SLG’s Surrey Leaders of Governance. If you are a current ASG in Surrey or a governor who is prepared to offer a little extra time to support governor colleagues when needed then please get in touch with either Ruth Murton ruth@leadershipwise.co.uk or June Cremes June Crame June.Crame@merton.gov.uk for reference COGNUS web site www.cognus.ork.uk:
