Congratulations to the governing body of Cathedral School who have been awarded The Bishop’s Certificate by The Southwark Diocesan Board of Education. In order to achieve the award our governors had to attend at least seven of the nine modules including The Curriculum, Effective Governance and Teaching, Learning and Achievement. This award is valid for 4 years and demonstrates a committment to training and self-evaluation in order to support the school in its drive for excellence.
Governors play a key role in developing and improving their schools; clarity about the role of governing bodies is crucial to an effective partnership between governors and the headteacher and staff. The Bishop of Southwark acknowledges this important role played by governors of Church of England schools in the Diocese of Southwark and endorses this modular course which aims to clarify the role of the governing body in a Church of England school.
