In October, I used my blog to speak about the importance of effective governance and how much I value the expertise and commitment of our trustees and school improvement board (SIB) members.

This week, I am delighted to report that we have launched an external governance review across the trust. Over the next two weeks, consultants will speak to trustees, SIB members and chairs, governance leads, heads and members of the executive team and analyse survey responses to really drill down into what is working well and what can be improved in governance practice across the trust. This is an exciting opportunity for us to work with experienced governance professionals to design an innovative and ambitious framework for governance at Rivers CofE Academy Trust. I look forward to interesting discussions in the months ahead as we explore new ways to utilize to the full the experience, expertise and passion for education of our trustees and SIB members. Ultimately, getting this right is important for our family of schools because effective governance ensures the best possible outcomes for our pupils.
