Suffolk Guidance on forming a Federation
In our Governor Headlines Live meeting on 27 January, 2021, we introduced a document recently written by the Local Authority; 'Suffolk Guidance on forming a Federation'.
Local Authority officers are sometimes involved in discussions with governors and other school leaders about potential partnership working with other schools, which may lead to forming or joining a federation.
This can be linked to support for Headteacher recruitment, sustainability and budget. The guidance has been produced with the aim of supporting governing bodies in their decision making and discussions if they are considering federation. It will also support the due diligence process. Schools will be able to use it and the sources referenced within it to explore the benefits that federating may provide and any lessons previously learnt by school leaders who have followed this path.
We hope you will find it useful.
