Make sure your board has what it needs to support your school and make a difference. From best-in-class management tools and governor-specific training, to Ofsted guidance and ready-made agendas.

Securely manage the work of your board and make it easier to stay connected, with Governance tools

  • Collaborate and communicate

    No more email attachments or distribution lists. Post a message on your private noticeboard and we’ll notify everyone by email; message the entire board, or just a chosen committee.

  • Stay on track and organised

    Add meetings or school events to a shared calendar that your governors can link to their phone. Attach a folder of documents to each meeting, and download a full attendance report for each academic year.

  • Store papers securely

    Give all governors easy access to papers, past and present, with documents and policies in 1 place. Read or print directly from the page and restrict access to folders with sensitive material.

  • Manage board membership

    Track membership, set a unique constitution and download useful data on membership, meetings, committees, training and board history.
