How can we improve the outcomes for those children most at risk of exclusion?

This session will address why governors should have a clear oversight of behaviour  management strategies in school, including the impact of specific strategies and  interventions provided by the school and external partners. It will help governing boards to  understand issues related to the use of exclusions as well as the longer term impact of on  children who are excluded from school. The session will help all those involved in the formal  process of pupil exclusions to understand and apply the statutory guidance Exclusion from  maintained schools, academies and pupil referral units in England September 2017, to  ensure that all fixed term and permanent exclusions comply with ethical and legal  requirements.

This session will focus on how governing boards can ensure: 

  • Contextualise the issues for those young people most at risk of exclusions  from across the educational landscape and within Hackney schools. 
  • Consider actions that will support the improvement to outcomes for all  children, particularly those most at risk of exclusions. 
  • Reflect on the ethical and legal aspects when evaluating why your school has  recommended an exclusion and ensure this is lawful, considered and unbiased. 
  • Understand what happens at an Independent Review Panel (IRP) when  parent appeal the governors’ decision to permanently exclude their child.

This training is suitable for Governors and Clerks at all school phases. This session is  suitable for all phases and recommended for all those involved in the formal preparing for,  conducting and making decisions at a Pupil Disciplinary Committee (PDC), including clerks. 

We strongly advise that governors who play a role in PDCs have participated in exclusion  training within the last 2 years. New headteachers/principals and other school leaders  involved in the exclusions processes of the school should also be encouraged to attend this  exclusions training.

How do we ensure an inclusive approach for children with Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND)?

As the government plans to strengthen system-wide education takes shape alongside the implications of fairer funding, never has there been a greater need for strong, autonomous and effective governance across our richly mixed economy of schools – maintained, voluntary aided, and academy and independent registered status, some of which stand alone and others in varying forms of partnership and federation.

This interactive session introduces governors to the legislation and guidance around SEND. Governors will have an opportunity to reflect on and discuss the complex issues surrounding effective inclusion, and to explore their role in supporting schools to ensure the best possible outcomes for their pupils with SEND.

This course will focus on how to:

  • Promote all forms of equality and foster greater understanding of and respect for people, with a particular focus on SEND.
  • Provide high quality education and successful outcomes for pupils with SEND.
  • Effectively engage with parents, carers, other stakeholders and agencies to support all SEND pupils.

How do we safeguard our children including those from Black, Asian and Minoritised Ethnic communities?

This session will enable Safeguarding Governors to explore how they can best support their school’s SLT and the Designated Safe Guarding lead role in discharging the statutory responsibility to safeguard all children, including those from Black, Asian and Minoritised Ethnic communities. In doing so, the session will explore legislative and statutory guidance drivers and the support mechanisms provided by HLT’s Safeguarding in Education Team in improving practice and preparing for a safeguarding inspection.

This course will focus on how governing boards can ensure their schools:

  • An awareness of national statutory guidance and local procedures to be followed in safeguarding children, enabling governing boards to review if the arrangements for safeguarding are effective in their schools.
  • An understanding of how governing boards can ensure their school is a safe place for children, what measures could be taken to raise awareness and keep pupils safe from abuse and neglect. Including sexual exploitation and radicalisation and extremism.
  • An awareness about the duty staff and Designated Safeguarding Leads in schools’ have when they suspect that pupils are vulnerable or at risk of significant harm.
  • Awareness of guidelines for good and safe practice (including safer recruitment), keeping professional boundaries, dealing with allegations against staff and whistle blowing.
  • Information on best practice and preparation for Ofsted.
