This page provides information about the support and guidance the Council provides to schools around governance and school organisation.
Strong governance is a crucial part of a successful school. It enables effective strategic leadership leading to robust accountability, oversight and assurance for educational and financial performance. Bromley Council has commissioned Octavo Governance to provide governors services to ensure that Governors and Trustees across Bromley can access help and training to support their Governance needs.
When proposing changes to schools such as increasing or decreasing pupil numbers, changing age range or designation or closing a school, governors, trusts and local authorities need to have regard to their responsibilities and the statutory requirements with regards to school organisation.
