I moved on to join the Governor Support Team at St Gemma's Hospice Conference Centre...

It was great to be able to talk to the team which has increased now to a team of twenty colleagues with the appointment of the new clerks. Successful schools need brilliant governing bodies and they need great clerks. These colleagues are bringing a new rigour and focus to governance in Leeds which is so important in terms of the strategic leadership of our schools. We want every school in Leeds to be a brilliant learning places with strong and highly effective leadership and strong governing bodies supporting the schools and holding their leadership teams to account. This will require more intelligent accountability and developing a more comprehensive picture of what our fantastic schools are doing at the heart of vibrant, harmonious and richly diverse communities.

And by the way the Conference Centre at St Gemma's Hospice is a great place for training events and meetings.
