Exeter Diocesan Board of Education has a dedicated and long term relationship with the work of School Governing boards.
We offer specialist advice and guidance on a wide range of issues specific to the governance of Church of England Schools.
In addition, the appointment of all Foundation Governors is undertaken via the Diocese and we offer training to all church school governors, often in conjunction with our local authority partners.
