Spotlight on…The Governor Portal

18 Mar 2018

Our Governor Portal is very popular with governing bodies as it provides a secure area for governors to communicate, collaborate and view school information.

Secure
Each Governor has their own account. Your school controls both access (login details) and the shared resources…enabling greater control over your information.

Files
The Clerk of the governing body (or other nominated individual[s]) can upload agendas, minutes and other relevant documentation to the file storage area. They can then choose which governors need to have access to each document.

Calendar
A great place to store all governing body meeting dates, as well as any other key dates, within the school’s calendar.

Groups
Create groups for the various sub-committees in your governing body. Group homepages are a great place to share resources and information with other group members.

Messages
Send secure messages from governor to governor, meaning long email threads will be a thing of the past. This is a great alternative to sending messages to a governor’s personal email inbox that your school has no control over.
Also, coming soon is Governor Chat which will provide a brand new forum for whole governing body discussions!

If this sounds like something your governing body might be interested in, please get in touch using the details below and we can help get you started. If you haven’t already got this feature included in your eSchools package, you can add it for just £200 + VAT per year.

As always, if there is anything at all we can help you with please don’t hesitate to get in touch via support@eschools.co.uk or 0845 557 7056.
