Governors update 


Date: February 20, 2018


Audience: all new school governors; those with a boarding overview and governors wishing an update on the national picture.  


Why should your Governor attend?

Boarding schools face a wide range of challenges ranging from the new National Minimum Standards (NMS) and the associated Inspection Framework to UK Boarders Agency Visa requirements for overseas boarders. In addition, supporting the pastoral needs of pupils in an increasingly complex and demanding environment  require schools and their staff to keep current with best practice. This seminar will provide an opportunity to better understand the boarding aspects at your school and to therefore help development and improvement in the provision.



We will consider the new NMS and the Boarding Inspection requirements, and we will explore the emerging challenges to help governors better understand their role and allow them to be more effective in supporting the operation and development of boarding.  After an overview of UK Boarding, we will look at the key areas of safeguarding, inspection, and raising standards.


Topics covered:

  • The UK Boarding Picture
  • The Legal Framework and school policies, procedures and practices
  • Update on Safeguarding/Child Protection Issues affecting boarding school
  • Compliance and Inspections
  • Best practice in meeting boarders’ needs
