Ken Lloyd, the Vice Chair of Governors at Felpham Community College, has been appointed by the Department for Education (DfE) as one of only 65 National Leaders of Governance (NLGs) seen by the DfE as “key to sustained school improvement”.
Designated NLGs have demonstrated the substantial governance experience and expertise needed to carry out the role to a high standard through a rigorous and externally moderated assessment process.
The NLG Programme forms part of the DfE’s funded offer of improvement support for schools and trusts. The aim is to achieve sustainable change on boards with NLGs sharing their expertise and experience to build the capacity and skills of those involved in governance to positively shape the school or trust’s provision.
Baroness Barran, Parliamentary Under-Secretary of State for the School System commented:
“Effective governance absolutely underpins our continuing efforts to raise standards in our schools. Trustees and governors play a crucial role in our education system, serving with dedication and commitment for the benefit of our children and young people. I am delighted that we have designated new expert NLGs to support trustees and governors, particularly those in trusts and schools that are most in need.”
Mark Anstiss, Headteacher at FCC commented:
“Ken has played a key role with the leadership of Felpham for many years, as Chair of Governors and now as Vice Chair. The work he has done and continues to do with the school is outstanding. It is great for him to be continuing his role as a National Leader of Governance, the DfE are lucky to have his expertise.”
