The DfE recently announced the new school improvement offer. It provides support for schools identified as ‘requires improvement’ in their latest Ofsted report.

The Derbyshire NLGs substantial experience of working with governors in a variety of contexts is available to NLEs leading on school improvement offers in Derbyshire schools. We have all undertaken the initial briefing on the offer and have already responded to deployment requests. We are also available for deployments beyond the County boundary.

NLG’s are experienced Chairs of Governors who are selected, trained and designated by the Department for Education. They work independently to support governors and increase leadership capacity in schools.
