Leadership and Management

Development for boards

This has been funded by the Department for Education through the National Governance Association. It is fully-funded for schools in Doncaster Opportunity Area who are Ofsted rated ‘Requires Improvement’ or ‘Inadequate’.

This is a bespoke programme aimed at those who are governing in complex circumstances. The chair or future chair of the board will join a development programme for chairs, and will work closely with a consultant analysing an online board self-evaluation. The results of this will inform an action plan for the governing board’s development. In addition, the consultant will engage with the whole board and senior leaders so that any further support, including coaching, mentoring and subject specific training needs can be identified and provided.

Challenge Partners

We have funded the development of a Challenge Partners hub in Doncaster. The goal of Challenge Partners is to reduce the educational inequality and improve the life chances of all children. Through collaboration, challenge and professional development they are working to ensure every school community can benefit from the combined wisdom of the whole system.

This is a great opportunity for schools to access networks of expert professionals, events, knowledge sharing and a rigorous annual school review from partners in the network.

You can find out more on Challenge Partners here.
