Safeguarding including SEND/Disadvantaged children (including pupil premium and children in care) - Graham Robertson

The role of coming into school to observe lessons, speak with co-ordinators and carry out learning walks will be able to be taken by governors who have the opportunity to do so during the day.  Other governors who have work commitments who cannot get into school during the day, can take on other roles such as writing up pieces for the school newsletter, checking policies and the prospectus and carrying out questionnaires or surveys on behalf of the governors, analysing the results to feed back to sub and full committees.
