Glyncoed has subscribed to Governors Cymru for training support and advice throughout 2018-19.


Governor Cymru provides a range of support to inspire and promote effective school governance via a subscription-based package which includes exclusive access to a confidential support line, regular e-bulletins and access to members’ online advice and guidance sections.


We also attend selected staff training sessions.


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



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.
