Governors, Trustees and Directors

Are you a Board member, such as a school governor, charity trustee or company director?  Does your organisation or Establishment arrange outdoor learning, off-site visits or learning outside the classroom?

The documents below give essential guidance to you for your role and responsibilities. If your Governing Body or Board employs the staff, then please also read the specific guidance for Employers.

We have kept the documents on this page to a minimum.  If you do not find what you are looking for, please use the search facility or browse the Contents.
