Governors Support Services

Edsential are committed to supporting you in meeting the challenges of School Governance and the requirements set through the Department of Education framework.

Government reform of the education system has led to an increasing reliance on school-based system of Governance to provide increasing accountability and control. This has meant that the Role & Responsibilities of the Governing Board become directly responsible for finance, standards, school improvement, best value purchasing requirements, regulatory and disciplinary matters and personnel/HR issues.
