National role for Fairstead School governor Martin
The chair of governors at Fairstead Community Primary and Nursery School in Lynn has been chosen for a new national role.
Martin Sale will be supporting other chairs of governors to improve the ways schools perform and how they are run.
He is one of only 44 governors to be appointed to the role of National Leader of Governance (NLG) in the latest recruitment round by the National College for School Leadership.
Successful candidates were invited to the National College’s learning and conference centre for a formal induction and training for the role.
National Leaders of Governance are highly effective chairs of governors, who will use their skills and experience to support chairs of governors in schools and academies for a variety of reasons.
The chair may be new, governors may want to focus more on school improvement, or need support in dealing with significant strategic challenges – for example becoming a federation or converting to academy status.
They will provide coaching and can support their counterparts in a variety of different ways – for example in using data effectively to improve school performance or by providing more effective support and challenge for their headteacher.
Suzanne O’Connor Fairstead School headteacher said “Martin’s excellent leadership has played a crucial part in developing an effective governing body at Fairstead.”
