The heads & governors briefing available to governors this term will be held by way of a webinar; the evening session will be held on 8th June 2022 from 4.30 pm – 6.30 pm.

A webinar will replace the previously advertised in-person briefing at the Mill Green Golf Club. This will take place at 5 pm on Tuesday 30th November 2021. Similarly, the 2021 HASG AGM (see below) will be held virtually at 7 pm on 13th December 2021.
This decision has been made because cases of COVID-19 are currently high both nationally and in Hertfordshire and schools have been asked to implement additional measures to reduce the spread of the virus. With these measures in mind, we consider it appropriate that this term’s Headteacher Updates remains in webinar form. The programme will include the following updates and items:
The FFT Governor Dashboard has been developed in partnership with the National Governors’ Association and the Wellcome Trust. It clearly displays information about results and pupil progress, subject performance, progress of pupil groups, attendance and school context. Using our platform, school’s performance can be viewed instantly, and flagging up issues that governors can investigate. The Dashboard will also help governors get to grips with government’s new Attainment 8 measure, and from 2016 dashboards will also include Progress 8 analysis.
The Governor Dashboard was developed by governors for governors because we wanted to focus our design on presenting complex information in a way that would be clear and meaningful to you.
All subscribing schools can download the Governor Dashboard from FFT Aspire, and share it easily with governors. Alternatively, governors can be provided with their own account, giving access to not only the Governor Dashboard but also a range of other information to aid their ‘support and challenge’ role. The new Aspire has also been enhanced to include overviews of all key stages, providing a wealth of information in an accessible format.
FFT are holding free webinars for Governors to outline the new Governor Dashboard.
The webinar lasts forty five minutes. To book your free place please visit www.fft.org.uk/training-events/Webinar.aspx.
