Lambeth Schools Partnership Governors' Working Together Event - Presentations etc

Lambeth Schools Partnership Governors' Working Together Event - Thursday 26 September 2019


The Lambeth Schools Partnership comprises the Local Authority, schools, academies and other education settings working together to accelerate school improvement across the borough and to provide professional challenge and support. It co-ordinates, signposts and brokers a range of training and traded support services available via Lambeth School Services, Teaching Schools and Clusters.  


LSP Governors' Working Together Events are held three times a year, a few days after the equivalent events for headteachers.  There is a presentation from Lambeth's Director of Education and Learning, Cathy Twist, about national and local developments and matters of interest, with other LA officers also contributing, as appropriate.  The Lambeth Governors' Forum always has a slot and there are opportunities for discussion and to ask questions.   


At this term's event governors heard from:


  • Betsy Nelson, the LA's Behaviour and Inclusion Adviser, about support for schools when dealing with the inclusion of vulnerable pupils, including Lambeth's new Fair Access Protocol


If you want to take it for yourself, this is the unconscious bias test that Betsy spoke about in her presentation: The Harvard Unconscious Bias Online Test 


  • Clare Dudman, Assistant Director, School Quality Assurance and Partnerships provided an introduction to the new Ofsted Inspection Framework, including on the ground experience from a Lambeth school recently inspected under the new framework.


  • Cathy Twist, Director, Education and Learning, provided an update on national and local developments and on the developments within the Lambeth Schools Partnership and its working groups.


All the presentations and the agenda are available to download above.
