Re-constitution - Consultation

DFE have consulted on changes to the regulations and statutory guidance (closed 14 March 2014)


Part of the national agenda for smaller more skills based GBs

Act more like corporate boards and only appoint people with the skills to help the school succeed

More professional standard of governance

Guidance on GBs as strategic leaders setting out their core functions clearly

Two Year Journey
  • By September 2014
  • By September 2015
  • All ‘appointed’ governors to be selected for the skills they bring
  • Key skills identified in statutory guidance
  • Skills audits undertaken prior to recruitment
  • Increased expectation for shared governance across more than one school – compare and contrast
  • All maintained school governing bodies to have reconstituted under 2012 regulations
  • Surplus governors removed on basis of skills rather than length of service
  • Reconstitution as a tool to drive GB improvement
