Schools and headteachers require reliable and effective governance. In the current climate of a rapidly changing educational landscape the need for a Governing Body with the right skills and competencies has never been greater. The Oxford Diocesan Board of Education is wholly committed to providing the best possible training and support for Governors who serve our schools so that leaders can work together, within a climate of support and challenge, to drive vision and improve outcomes for our children.
