Local Governing Body Handbook

This handbook provides guidance to support the effective operation of local governing bodies in the Catholic Multi-Academy Trusts of the diocese of Nottingham.

Governor Welcome

This provides a suggested structure for induction of new governors. It sets out what as a minimum should be covered in the briefing session with the headteacher, provides a list of essential documents that the school should ensure the governor has access to, and provides a checklist for the governor themselves to use through the process. Schools are able to tailor and adapt the policy.
