School and Governor support
School and Governor support is available through Birmingham City Council (BCC) to maintained schools and academies for an annual subscription. It provides a range of services that support school leaders, school staff, governors, trustees and clerks to deal effectively with day-to-day leadership and management issues and create strong governance.
Subscribers have access to the following core elements of school and governor support:
- advice on routine matters relating to the day-management and governance
- updated guidance on managing key roles and responsibilities
- consultancy in more complex and challenging situations that requires a tailored solution leading to a satisfactory outcome

School and Governor support carries out routine oversight of governance on behalf of Birmingham City Council (BCC) at its maintained schools. The service works collaboratively with schools, other BCC education services and the Birmingham Education Partnership (BEP) to identify governing bodies in need of targeted support or additional challenge.
