Governance Masterclass for Chairs and Vice Chairs - Part 3

2 February 2021 5pm – 6.30pm Webinar

Hosted by AGBIS, in association with BDB Pitmans’ Independent Schools legal team, this Masterclass will provide you with a governance toolkit to enable you to get the best out of your Governing Body, and in turn the best out of your School.

Do you set as aside enough time to look at your School’s medium to long term strategy and risk profile? Do you have a handle on how the School is planning to maintain/increase its income streams?

Dealing with the immediate challenges of the covid pandemic is an inevitable priority, nevertheless a key role of the Chair is to ensure that the Governing Body takes ownership of securing and overseeing the long-term sustainability of the School, in particular its financial viability. This last session will look at the Governing Body’s role in the oversight of fundraising (and associated data protection considerations), income from the school estate and property development, the use of restricted funds and the associated risk ‘red flags’ that you as Chair/Vice Chair should be aware of.  We will then wrap up with a summary of the top tips and suggested actions from this Masterclass series.

Part 1 will be on Tuesday 19 January and part 2 will be on Tuesday 26 January
