SBW Governance is a small consultancy based in North Staffordshire run by Fiona Stagg and is focused on helping school and academy Governors and Trustees become better and more effective Governors and Trustees.
Fiona is a National Leader of Governance, Chair of Governors, and an Independent Clerk in both the maintained and academy sectors and works both with and for governors, schools and academies and Local Authorities supporting effective governance. Fiona undertakes and participates in as much CPD/PDP as possible and suports the power of networking and collaboration in order to improve and support governance across the system.
Fiona is thrilled to have been selected as a volunteer coach for the Women Leading in Education DfE/NCTL network and as a mentor for the Inspiring Governance programme.
If you would like more information or would like to work with us please get in touch. Copies of her CV are available on request.
And if you have a few moments to spare check out The Clerk's Elbow https://clerkselbowsite.wordpress.com for a light hearted blog on clerking.
From April 2019 for a period of time I will be working for the Shaw Education Trust as Head of Governance and Policy on a full time basis. However, I am still able to undertake commissions for work such as external reviews and training so please do get in touch.
I am also the Chair of a new Multi Academy Trust. It's all very exciting!
NEWS (bit old now but ...)
Fiona was thrilled to be a finalist in the bi-annual NGA Oustanding Clerk of Year in 2017 - you can read the press release from the NGA here; and in 2019 I was clerk to one of the finalists in the Vision and Values category and as an aside was a ex-trustee at one of the joint winners.
