We also attend selected staff training sessions.


Other Cardiff school Governing Bodies attend our meeting to observe good governance practice.


Mandatory Training for Governors

The Education (Wales) Measure 2011 includes provisions to allow Welsh Ministers to make regulations to make governor training mandatory on specific issues. The Government of Maintained Schools (Training Requirements for Governors) (Wales) Regulations 2013 were made for this purpose and came into force in September 2013. 6.

They require certain governors to carry out the following training:  Induction Training – for governors appointed or elected after 20 September 2013  Training for Chairs – elected after 20 September Support and Training for Governors Guide to the Law: Updated Spring 2016 Chapter 7, Page 2  Understanding School Data - for governors appointed or elected after 20 September 2013.



We take our roles and responsibilities as a Governing Body very seriously. 


Twice a year, we self evaluate using a questionnaire which every member must complete.

During the autumn term, every member completes a Skills Audit to ensure their expertise is being used effectively.


Glyncoed Governing Body has a Code of Conduct Policy to ensure all governors respect the confidentiality, propriety and ethics required of the role.
