Overseeing the financial performance of the school and making sure its money is well spent is a core duty of school Governing Boards but how do Governors assess whether they are successfully achieving this duty?

The annual completion and submission of the School Financial Value Standards (SFVS) is a requirement for all maintained schools, including pupil referral units. This self-assessment provides Governors a framework against which they can assess themselves against the standards necessary to achieve good financial health and resource management.

The drop-ins will provide childminders the opportunity to come together with their children to enjoy fun activities linked to their children’s learning and development and strengthen friendships and links between other local childminders.

A Childminding Development Officer from the Council will be running the sessions which will give all childminders regular access to support they may need.

We recognise that childminders may sometimes find it difficult to access services to enrich the needs of the children they care for. Therefore, we will be inviting professionals such as Area SENCOs (Special Educational Needs Coordinators), Curriculum Leaders, Speech and Language Therapists, Health Visitors, Safeguarding Advisors, Early Help Advisors and FEEE Officers to attend some of these drop-ins. A schedule of these visits is available on the Events and Training page of The Hub: http://wftradedservices.uk/Training.

The drop-ins are free for childminders registered for the Free Early Education Entitlement (FEEE). There is a small charge of £1.50 for the first child and 50p for each additional child for those minders who are not FEEE-registered. If you would like to know more about offering the FEEE and the registration process, please visit The Hub: https://thehub-beta.walthamforest.gov.uk/commissionedtodeliverFEEE

Each and every term Governor Services host a briefing for all school governors at the Town Hall. There is an expectation that no less that one governor per board attend this briefing.

Governor Services work to ensure that these briefings are informative and considered a productive use of governor time.

As you will know from 1 January 2010 it became mandatory that any appointments of school staff should be made by a recruitment panel that includes at least one person who has been trained in Safer Recruitment. This course is based on the updated version of the national accredited training that has been developed by the Safer Recruitment Consortium which has taken over responsibility for the design of the training.

The course is fully compliant with the national guidance ‘Keeping Children Safe in Education’ 2015 and includes an assessment that is a requirement for all school based participants.

The Safer Recruitment training will enable schools to fulfill their responsibility to have in place safe recruitment and selection practice within the wider context of safeguarding children and to make safeguarding children central to all we do.

This course is also open to childcare providers. Whilst it is not statutory for childcare providers to follow the Government’s safer recruitment requirements, following these procedures would be good practice and will ensure compliance with the EYFS statutory requirements regarding recruitment and employment law.
